FROM OUR ARCHIVES Flashback INDIAN RENAISSANCE AGifted Past During the Society's early days, unsolicited photos occasionally found their way into our archives. In 1917 an 86-year-old retired New York dentist sent the GEOGRAPHIC some pictures-including this portrait of an Apache man-made "in Arizona away back in 1879 & 80. There are some good ones you could use if you should ever write up and illustrate Arizona," the dentist, T. S. Hitchcock, wrote. "Now, you can keep them. If they're worth a year's sub scription, all right." They remained unpublished, until recently. And as far as we can tell, Hitchcock never did get free magazines. -Margaret G.
