eBay Scarce early original vintage photograph taken by notable Montana photographer James Campbell Whitham.  View shows three row boats and their occupants enjoying a day on the East Rosebud Lake (Armstrong Lake) in the  Beartooth Mountains of Montana.The Beartooth Mountains are located in south central Montana and northwest Wyoming, U.S. and are part of the 900,000 acre  Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness, within Custer, Gallatin and Shoshone National Forests. The Beartooths are the location of Granite Peak, which at 12,807 feet is the highest point in the state of Montana.  Huge expansive plateaus are found at altitudes in excess of 10,000 feet with over 25 peaks exceeding 12,000 feet. The mountains have over 300 pristine lakes and some waterfalls in excess of 300 feet.The photograph were taken by notable Montana photographer James Campbell Whitham, a career Forest Service official who served mainly in Montana in the early 1900s. Many of Whitham’s photographs seem to have been taken during his first Forest Service job. While working in the Beartooths, he snapped shots of prominent mountain lakes like Goose, Deep, and East Rosebud. Whitham held his supervisor position of the Sioux Forest until 1920, when the forest was absorbed by the Custer National Forest and he took over as supervisor of the combined regions until 1924.It was also at this time that Whitham's name was indelibly etched into the history of the region and state. A year before leaving the Custer, Whitham and a group of other forest officials made the first successful ascent of Granite Peak on Aug. 29, 1923.Whitham retired from the Forest Service in 1939, citing disability. But at the end of World War II, in 1945, he was reinstated and assigned to the Kootenai National Forest in northwestern Montana to survey timber."He was a real fun guy, very unassuming," said Mary Ann Whitham, his daughter-in-law. "He was photographing things when I first knew him. I've got some fascinating old photos he took." He died in 1963 at age 75 and was buried in Bozeman.Steve Jackson, of the Museum of the Rockies, said the Whitham collection of photographs is significant for its ties to early Forest Service history in the region. There are no plans to add to the images in the database, but he said the archive is available to the public although an appointment must be made to view collection.Photograph measures 6 1/2 x 10 inches and is in excellent condition with only a slight bend in the upper right corner (see scan). There are no  tears or creases and the image is very sharp and has strong tones with good contrast and clarity.  Back has light pencil notation, “East Rosebud Lake” and a file number.Please email with any questions and please "VIEW SELLERS OTHER ITEMS".
