Abstract

Cunningham, photograph collector and Stillwater photographer, chronicled the development of Oklahoma through his historical acquisitions and personal photographs. Cunningham’s collection records Oklahoma’s development from 1883 through the 21st century. The collection contains an extensive assemblage of negatives, photographs, documents and other archival materials.

Biography

Born in 1906, Cunningham moved to Stillwater, Oklahoma in 1923, when he enrolled as a freshman at Oklahoma A & M College, now Oklahoma State University. While living in Stillwater, he worked for Smith’s Studio, a local photographic studio detailing the development of A & M College and Stillwater. Leaving college for a five-year period, Cunningham edited the newspapers at Geary and Hinton, and worked as an assistant pressman for Lakeside Press in Chicago, Illinois. He returned to A & M and finished his college career by earning Bachelor of Science and Master of Arts degrees in 1931 and 1932. After serving in both World War II’s European and Pacific theaters from 1942 to 1946, Cunningham returned to Stillwater, where he operated a photoengraving business, Stillwater Engraving Company.

He was an avid collector, meticulous researcher, and prodigious writer. Among the books he wrote were 50 Years Of Oklahoma A & M, Indian Territory: A Frontier Photographic Record, and Trial By Mob, all published in 1957; Stillwater, Where Oklahoma Began, 1969; Perry: Pride Of The Prairie, 1973; and Stillwater Through The Years, 1974. He also worked for the Stillwater News-Press and wrote articles for Daily Oklahoman Sunday Supplement on Oklahoma history and early settlements. Cunningham died in 1991.

This collection contains photographs and negatives taken by W. S. Prettyman, Andrew Alexander Forbes, G. B. Cornish, I. H. Bonsall, D. S. Mitchell, and C. P. Wickmiller. The largest portion of the collection consists of more than 500 images produced by Stillwater, Oklahoma frontier photographer Henry Madison Wantland. Born in Springfield, Illinois on April 4, 1864, Wantland moved from Eureka, Kansas, to Stillwater, Oklahoma Territory in 1891 with his wife and children. Wantland bought W. A. Flower’s Stillwater photographic studio in 1897 and called it The Peoples Photo Studio and later, Wantland’s Art Studio, despite his lack of experience with photography. For the next 20 years Wantland made hundreds of exposures on glass plates of men, women, and children of Stillwater and produced cabinet cards that he sold at $1.50 per dozen. Wantland’s business declined after his divorce in 1909, and he eventually ended it to sell furniture. He died in 1953 at the age of 88, and Cunningham acquired his collection of glass plate negatives at an estate auction 35 years later.

Another photographer featured in the collection is Vince Dillon. Stillwater pharmacist, hunter and amateur photographer, Dillon befriended many Native Americans to document life on the plains during the early 1900s. His images record life on the 101 Ranch, Bliss, Oklahoma, and Native American chiefs and tribal life within Oklahoma.

Some of the most prolific frontier photographers within the collection are C. P. Wickmiller, D. S. Mitchell, Andrew Alexander Forbes, W. S. Prettyman, and I. H. Bonsall. Seven original Wickmiller prints provide a photographic record of Captain David L. Payne, Captain William L. Couch and the “Boomers” entering and leaving Indian Territory in 1883. I. H. Bonsall, apprentice under Mathew B. Brady, recorded 1860s Civil War portraits, structures and cities. In the 1870s he traveled to Arkansas City, Kansas and photographed Couch and Payne parties before departing for Oklahoma Territory. D. S. Mitchell recorded the 1889 land run and growth of Guthrie, Oklahoma. Of the most famous and widely duplicated historical photographs in the collection are Prettyman’s (1858-1932) and Forbes’ images of the 1893 Cherokee Strip opening. Other Oklahoma historical subjects within his collection document Guthrie, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University (A & M College), Oklahoma homesteading, and oil drilling within the state.

Historically significant records within the collection include the Guthrie, Oklahoma Charter Convention Meeting Minutes ledger (June 7, 1889-July 8, 1889), the transcribed diary of Simon Peter Duck, (October 22, 1861- March 27, 1865), Civil War veteran of the Fourth Iowa regiment, letters from artist Augusta C. Metcalfe to Cunningham’s Stillwater Engraving Co. (1958-1961), and pendants from A & M College, and 101 Ranch.

The Robert E. Cunningham Oklahoma History Collection was donated to the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in 2000 by Jane Mitchel. Original order was maintained in Subject Files, and Photographs. For ease of research, the subject and material dictated the organization of the remaining series. Historical accuracy through chronological order was instituted when appropriate.

Subject Files, 1890-1984: Subject files maintain Cunningham’s original order and titles arranged alphabetically and contain special “Indian” tribal file folders under the subheading Indian. Files of specific frontier photographers researched by Cunningham are located under “Photographers” at the end of the subject files. While rehousing the subject file folders, Chuck Rand segregated all photographs into a separate series, Series 2: Photographs. Original file titles were used in creating Series 2 file folders. Cataloged photographs 2000.005.9.0001-.0386 are the separated photographs from Cunningham’s document files, preserved in box #37. The photographs are not cataloged in the database, which contain the balance of the Cunningham photograph collection.

Photographs, 1856-ca. 1970s: Cataloged within the online image database are photographs 2000.005.9.0387-.2384 which reflect the balance of the Cunningham’s photograph collection. These photographs were rehoused and processed according to Cunningham’s original order, utilizing his assigned subject headings. Original photograph containers included binders, boxes, envelopes with additional loose photographs found within the indicated subject headings. The “Title” field within the database contains Cunningham’s original subject headings. Original container information is notated in the archival box subject heading dividers, and finding aid. Cunningham’s notes on specific photographs were transcribed into the database’s ‘Notes/Summary’ field. Any DRC staff-made titles or additions to titles are indicated by using brackets [a].

Clippings, 1893-1983: Cunningham wrote numerous newspaper articles recounting Oklahoma history from pre-land run to the 1970s. His extensive photographic collection acted as a basis for many of the published articles. The DRC’s in-house database cross-references the photographs to the specific published articles. Most of the articles published between 1960 and 1974 are cross-referenced by subject and photograph. Specific persons referenced in clippings are cross-referenced to the DRC’s in-house database.

Newspapers, 1893-1974: All newspapers originally part of the collection are listed on Appendix B. Alternative archival sources were searched and only rare newspapers found within the collection were preserved. All original copies of the newspapers were destroyed after photocopy preservation.

Postcards, ca. 1900-ca. 1940s: Cunningham’s original organizational grouping, place name and subject division was maintained. Groupings were arranged alphabetically from general category to specific subject image.

Booklets & Pamphlets, 1889-1961: Booklets and pamphlets found within the subject files were separated and accessioned by Chuck Rand. Pam Bell created the container list at the end of collection processing.

Destroyed Materials:

Photographs, Nitrate Negatives: Six nitrate negatives were destroyed due to extreme deterioration. The negatives were part of 2000.005.8.0096 A-I, Hoke Family.

Clippings: Photographic copies replace original clippings for preservation purposes. All original copies were destroyed at the end of processing.

Newspapers: Newspapers found within the Cunningham collection preserved in alternative archival repositories were destroyed at the end of processing. See the Newspaper Container list for a complete listing of holdings found within the collection.

The Robert E. Cunningham Oklahoma History Collection has no restrictions and is available for research. If you are interested in researching the materials, please contact the Dickinson Research Center to make an appointment.
