On This Day...

A DAILY FACTOID OF OUR ART HISTORY

Dec. 27

Elfie Caroline Huntington was born on this day (1868). Having lost her hearing from scarlet fever at the age of four, she studied photography with George Edward Anderson and opened a studio with Joseph Daniel Bagley, whom she married at the age of 68. Her thousands of studio photographs and travel images comprise a brilliant look at life in early Utah. https://lib.byu.edu/collections/huntington-bagley-collection/about/biography-of-elfie-huntington/
