Comments

Photo of Captain Spott, by J. A. Meiser, marked "Copy't/1907." Captain Spott is alleged to have died as early as "not long before the 1906 San Francisco earthquake" (Richard A. Gould in article "Seagoing canoes among the Indians of northwestern California," Ethnohistory, Vol. 15, p. 25, 1968) and as late as 1914 (Dale K. Valory in article "Ruth Kellett Roberts 1885-1967," Kroeber Anthropological Society Papers, No. 38, p.2. 1968). I can locate no contemporary source giving his date of death: his death is not recorded in the Del Norte County vital records. Captain Spott is here wearing a Brush Dance headroll and holding a quiver. Mrs. Ruth Roberts said Meiser was a Sacramento photographer (Notebook VII:139).
