Biographical/Historical Note

Robert Thomas King was born in 1944 in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. He spent most of his childhood in Florida and Georgia, where he developed an interest in Southern history. From 1966 to 1968, King served in the military as part of the United States Army's Third Armored Division in Germany. In 1971, he completed a bachelor's degree in history at the University of Florida, followed by a master's degree in 1973. While working on a Ph.D. at the University of Florida, he served as a consultant to the Southeastern Indian Oral History Project. He received funding from the Doris Duke Foundation that allowed him to live near the Brighton Seminole Reservation from 1972 to 1973, where he conducted research for his dissertation. He earned his Ph.D. in 1978 and in 1979 became the chief oral historian at the Indiana University Oral History Research Center (IOUHRC). In 1980, he then served as the IOUHRC's assistant director. He left the IOUHRC in 1983 to become director of the Oral History Program at the University of Nevada Reno. He wrote or edited a number of works based on oral history interviews, including The Free Life of a Ranger: Archie Murchie in the U.S. Forest Service 1929-1965 (University of Nevada Press, 1991) and Always Bet on the Butcher: Warren Nelson and Casino Gambling, 1930s-1980s (University of Nevada Press, 1994). He retired in 2009, after twenty five years as head of the Oral History Program.

Portions of the slides in this collection were taken by William D. Boehmer. He was born in Jonesburg, Missouri in 1905. In the 1930s, accepted a position teaching at a Sioux reservation in South Dakota. In 1938, he and his wife Mary "Edith" Meier Boehmer moved to Florida, when the Bureau of Indian Affairs hired him to teach students at Brighton Indian Day School. After the school closed in 1954, Boehmer continued to work with Seminoles in positions that included Educational Field Agent and Community Services Officer. He retired in 1966. Boehmer, an amateur photographer, took over two thousand photographs of the Seminoles. In the 1970s, he donated his negatives to the National Anthropological Archives of the Smithsonian Institution. William D. Boehmer died on November 22, 1990, at the age of 85.


Scope and Content

The R.T. King Photograph Collection contains slides of Seminoles collected by R.T. King, a graduate student at the University of Florida, as a part of his dissertation research. King took some of the photos, but the collection also contains slides produced by William D. Boehmer and other photographers, including Willard R. Culver, whose photographs of the Seminoles appeared in National Geographic Magazine. Subjects depicted in the collection include Seminole agriculture, education, tourism, the signing of the Seminole constitution and charter, and celebrations such as Field Day and Chalo Nitka. People with important connections to the tribe are also detailed, including Billy Bowlegs III, Albert Devane, Billy Osceola, and Betty Mae Jumper. A few of the images were commercially produced and purchased from the Okalee Indian Village and Crafts Center and Musa Isle Indian Village. King also reproduced historic paintings by artists such as James F. Hutchinson and engravings by Theodor de Bry to illustrate Seminole history, which he combined with the Seminole photographs he collected, for a presentation before the Alachua County Historical Society in 1978. He created a similar slideshow for an open house at the Florida State Museum (now the Florida Museum of Natural History) in October 1980.


Arrangement

The slides retain their original numbering. The slides were divided into groups that were identified with a letter of the alphabet; each slide was numbered within its group. Slides moved from the Capron collection to the R.T. King Photograph Collection have been labeled according to the order of Kodak boxes in which they were originally stored and then individually numbered. The slides arranged by R.T. King and used for an open house at the Florida State Museum have been kept together but were drawn from throughout the Capron addition. They have been labeled "King" and individually numbered.
