Doctor, buggy and dogs.  This is taken from a glass negative in the Photography collection at the University of Washington Library.  L. D. Lindsley's notebook identifies the man as Dr, O'Shea;  there were a number of doctors in the O'Shae family of Spokane but none of their ages are recorded in Spokane newspapers and the like seem to correspond with this person.  An elderly present-day Indian resident of Nespelem identified the man orally as Dr, Hodnutt, but no record of such a name could be found in Indian Service listings.  Dr. James Walker was a friend of Latham's.  It is likely that in good weather Dr. Latham traveled by buggy during his later years on the reservation.,
