Family portrait, circa 1915. Henry M. Wantland, photographer. Stillwater, Oklahoma. Robert E. Cunningham Collection, Dickinson Research Center, National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. 2000.005.3.0654a.

In 1891, Henry M. Wantland and his young family arrived in Oklahoma Territory and settled in Stillwater, a small town born of the Land Run and bustling with opportunity and ambition. He eventually purchased a photography studio and spent the next two decades recording the world around him. In the exhibition We the People: A Portrait of Early Oklahoma, the Museum presents a selection of Wantland’s work from the Dickinson Research Center’s Robert E. Cunningham Oklahoma History Collection. Continues through October 22, 2017.
