Frederick Wadsworth Loring

Watercolor from 1997., based on the photography taken by Timothy H. O'Sullivan on the Wheeler Survey at November 5, 1871.
This person is Frederick Wadsworth Loring, the Boston reporter and crew member of the Wheeler Survey, with his mule 'Evil Merodach', four hours before Yavapai Indians attacked his stagecoach and killed him near Wickenburg, Arizona.
