DEWEESE, WILLIAM DALLAS. 1857-1928.
Albumen print cabinet card signed ("Dall DeWeese"), 3 3/4 x 5 inches laid down to larger board, of DeWeese posing with massive Elk trophy, identified in plate "This elk killed by Dall DeWeese 1888, Canon City, Colo.," signed and inscribed by DeWeese on the verso "Compliments of ... 4-25/99," some thumbsoiling to mount.

Dall DeWeese was a horticulturist and hunter who was an important early booster for Colorado's mining and tourism industries. He spent some time in the Alaska during the Klondike gold rush, and collected several mammal specimens that became type specimens of the species. The capture of the massive elk in the present photograph turned DeWeese into a celebrity in the late 19th century.
