About the Author

Peter Palmquist was known to all in the photo history world as the Dean of California photo historians. Far beyond that informal title, he was a leading authority on the history of the photography of the West and on women in photography worldwide. He was a particular authority on Carleton Watkins, best known of the early art photographers of the West, Peter Britt, the versatile artist turned photographer who dominated photography in Southern Oregon from the 1850s to 1900, and Lawrence & Houseworth, one of San Francisco's pre-eminent photography galleries of the 1860s. For many years Peter was the official photographer at Humboldt State University in Arcata, California, from which he retired to become a full time photo history lecturer and consultant in the late 1980s. He began collecting information and photographs in the early 1970s which led to a series of books on what Peter called "regional photographic history," beginning, of course, with his beloved Humboldt County. This resulted in a pioneering series of seven volumes entitled The Photographers of the Humboldt Bay Region . Co-authored with Lincoln Kilian, the series covered the period 1850 through 1885, and included a special edition on prominent Eureka photographer A. W. Erickson and another on a rare book with tipped-in photographs from the Edgar Cherry Lumber Co.

Peter was an exhaustive researcher who scoured libraries and historical society archives for decades to tease out every fact he could from primary sources on photographers in the West and women photographers. He lectured extensively throughout the world. He was the editor-in-chief of Photographers: A Sourcebook for Historical Research, past editor of The Daguerreian Annual, contributing editor or on the editorial board of Journal of the West, The Photographic Historian, The Californians, The Journal of California and Great Basin Anthropology . Peter published hundreds of books, articles and papers on many different aspects of photography. His latest project was his Women in Photography International Archive, the intent of which was to cover every facet of the participation of women in photography from the beginning to the present.
