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.
