Oregon Genealogy, Hazeltine Collection




It is hoped that some ancestor of this family may know who they are







M. M. Hazeltine's stereoviews; both are hand titled in faint pencil on back as "Miners" but this may not be Hazeltine's writing - maybe a later person's guess at the subject matter. They are on the mount style he used in Baker City and the series is called "On the Line of the O.R.& N RR". In this case, they are not printed but hand titled in ink, indicating maybe that this was a limited edition. Apparantly Hazeltine had a deal with the RR which assisted them in advertising and allowed him to travel and photograph all over Oregon and up into Alaska.  He also reissued his older California negatives, I think, on Baker City Mounts, so one has  to be careful to make sure the subject is really Oregon.  Also went down and did a series of Yellowstone from Baker city.
In the big group photo, if these are miners, the guys in front with ties, vests, etc must be Management. In the smaller group, if miners, they are cleaned up pretty good.
Maybe someone can match some faces with photos in the archive collection and determine if these are Baker City or Canyon City, or other.
