These photographs have been identified by Joanna Scherer as taken by Benedicte Wrensted, whose photographic studio was located in Pocatello, Idaho. Ms. Scherer is an Anthropologist who was working on the Smithsonian Institution's , Handbook of North American Indians Project. Wrensted learned photography from her aunt in Denmark in the 1880's and had a studio in Horsens, Denmark for about four years. Wrensted came to the United States from Denmark in 1894, moved to Pocatello, and purchased the studio of A.B. Hower in 1895. She continued to photograph members of the local community and Native Americans until 1912, when she moved to California.
