Descriptive UO TitleJ. N. Cornelison

General NotesA man identified as Presbyterian missionary Rev. J. N. Cornelison stands close in front of a tipi. He is dressed in a suit with open jacket, vest, fold-down collar, and patterned bow tie. His light-colored hair is cut short. He holds a light-colored western-style hat cradled in both hands in front of his stomach as he gazes off to his right. Near his left foot, a blurred image appears to be of a small dog or other animal rearing up on its hind feet. Behind him on the ground to his right, beside the tipi, is what appears to be a pile of clothing, and a person wrapped in a geometrically patterned blanket, kneeling and with their back to the camera. The figure's left hand is extended to the side and clutching something white. Two outside poles of the tipi are visible; the tipi appears to be made of canvas with wood or reed slatting at the top.
TCI NotesAn outside photograph of a non-Indian man standing on the back side of a half canvas and half tule mat tipi. This man has been identified as the Rev. James N. Cornelison of the Tutuilla Presbyterian Church located on the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (CTUIR). He is dressed up in a suit and has both of his hands crossed on his stomach with his hat resting on top of his hands. Just to his left on the ground is a blanket and clothing. Just behind the man is a pole which is used to help hold down the Tule Mats. In the background on the left side of the photograph is a tree with tipi poles leaning into it.
