Puzzles From The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art Glasier Photographic Collection

According to the Brockton Massachusetts 1908 City Directory, photographer Frederick Whitman Glasier had a studio in Brockton. It was at his studio that he worked, exhibited his photographs, and sold copies of his prints.  His photographs reflect this interest in the West and Native Americans.  As a young man, he had traveled out West and was greatly influenced by "Buffalo Bill" Cody.  Some Brockton residents would later "recall that he dressed in cowboy regalia, shoes, hat, leather jacket, with a goatee to match.”  You may view more Glasier images at: https://emuseum.ringling.org/emuseum/search/glasier
