New Exhibit in Special Collections

John Henry Hauberg Papers (1)The fall exhibit in Special Collections is “The Legacy of Black Hawk: Photographs from the John Henry Hauberg papers.” Hauberg was a local amateur historian, anthropologist, and photographer with a particular interest in the Native American history of the Quad Cities area. As part of his interest, Hauberg photographed Black Hawk’s descendents at Black Hawk State Park, at their homes in Kansas and Oklahoma, and photographed Native Americans at Tama, Iowa.

This exhibit includes photographs taken by Hauberg, produced from original glass plate negatives held in the collection. It also completments the Augustana Art Museum fall exhibit “Rosebud Sioux:  A Lakota People in Transition,” as well as the Swenson Center “Indians and Immigrants: Entangled Histories” conference this October. We hope you’ll stop by and check it out!
