Miller was the photographer in Arkansas City Kans
Craigs Chester Howell back
Chester Howell  July 7 1901  1905 Chilocco School
Does he look about 14 or 15 to you…maybe an Eighth Grade Photo?
Thanks for stopping by.

Update from Iggy:
I think this is Chester Norman Howell (July 8, 1892 in Uniontown, Arkansas - Aug 20, 1964 in Okmulgee, Oklahoma

Chilocco Indian School was an agricultural school for Native Americans located in north-central Oklahoma from 1884 to 1980. It was located approximately 20 miles north of Ponca City, Oklahoma and seven miles north of Newkirk, Oklahoma, near the Kansas border. The name "Chilocco" is apparently derived from a Muscogee word meaning "big deer" or horse.

Arkansas City is about 7 miles north-northeast of the school.

  1. The date on the photo looks like July 7, 1905 to me.

    He is mentioned in an article http://www.newspapers.com/newspage/53483682/ saying he was a "graduate" in 1906 and a painter.
