About this Item

This Oglala Lakota Sioux actor and Indian rights activist, the nephew of legendary Sioux warrior Crazy Horse, appeared in many silent Western films of the teens and '20s; he was discovered in 1893 by Buffalo Bill Cody at the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, where he was recruiting for his Wild West Show, and began at the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, at one memorable appearance in London in 1905, Red Fox "scalped" King Edward VII in a stagecoach robbery scene. Three items: First, a color postcard photograph of Red Fox, 3½" X 5½", n.p., n.y. Fine. Half-length portrait of the Chief in old age in full Native American dress. Sent out by Red Fox to admirers, with printed text on verso noting, "Chief William Red Fox is a living page from history. He recalls the Custer Massacre led by his Uncle, Crazy Horse." Second, an ANS from the Chief's wife, Georgia Red Fox. On the inside message panel of a color printed 3¼" X 6¼". Fine. Below a printed Christmas message, she boldly pens "Georgia Red Fox / God bless you and / Keep you. / All our love to / you" in blue ballpoint. And third, a TNS from the Chief's son, W.W. 1p, 8¼" X 8¼", n.p., n.y. Near fine. Cordial note to an admirer of the Chief's, reading in part: "My father was deeply impressed by your letter. He can no longer see to write and to read, but he sends his respects to you for the good work you are doing and his wish that the children grow in strength and wisdom under your guidance. Tell the children to keep up their faith in God, in their country and in you, sir. They are sure to come through their darkest periods with these attitudes." Signed boldly in full in blue ballpoint. An interesting trio of items. Bookseller Inventory # 34189
