- Content Summary
- This series contains photographs which feature health care and education on the Hopi Indian Reservation. Four images are from Keams Canyon Hospital and portray a "Blue Girl" (Cordelia Montoya), an orderly (Sylvan Nash), a newborn infant, and sterilization equipment from 1944. Three pictures are from Oraibi High School and show students using a microscope with Dr. Joseph Aronson of the Phipps Institute. The last three photos are from the clinic at Toreva School in June of 1950. These images show a clinic worker with Hopi clients and canned goods, as well as the same clinic worker tending to the leg of a young Hopi girl.
- Milton Snow was appointed as the official photographer by the Soil Conservation Service, in the 1930s, to record the images of dams, schools, roads, and hospitals that were being constructed across the Navajo and Hopi Reservations. Snow also became the staff photographer of the BIA and began to take pictures of the reservations. His photos reveal the various social, economic, and cultural activities of the Hopis living on the reservations.
