THE JEAN AND GRAHAM DEVOE WILLIFORD CHARITABLE TRUST
Born in Camden, South Carolina, Delancey Gill traveled and sketched extensively in Indian Territory. Although he had little formal education, Gill became assistant draftsman in the supervising Architect's office for the United States Government in 1877. The artist-scientist William Henry Holmes noted Gill's artistic ability and recommended him for illustration work with the US Geological Survey and the Bureau of Ethnology. In this job, he sketched the Arizona desert, and the upper Yellowstone River Valley in addition to Indian Territory.
Very good condition, perhaps with modest time toning to paper (sight). Matted and framed under glass. Not examined out of frame.
