Collection Historical Note

Reverend William Augustus Petzoldt (1872-1960); Petzoldt worked as a Baptist minister and missionary in Sheridan, Wyoming prior to moving to Lodge Grass in 1903.  In Lodge Grass Rev. Petzoldt and his wife Anna established a mission and day school for native children to attend, thereby allowing them to live with their families while also receiving an ‘white’ education.  Petzoldt photographed many of the residents of the area as part of his efforts to educate the public about the American Indian in the United States of America.
