Harry S. Yount
Harry S. Yount, 1873.
Harry worked as "game keeper" at Yellowstone National Park 1880-1881. Photograph was taken by William Henry Holmes while both were employed on the Ferdinand Vandiveer Hayden geological survey in 1873. Yount as guide and Holmes as illustrator. William Henry Jackson was the official photographer, but apparently Holmes also dabbled in this medium.
