L.A. Huffman, Photographer

Laton Alton Huffman

Evening all!

I was talking with a friend of mine today who mentioned the name L.A. Huffman. Not knowing who this was, I did a little research. Turns out, he was a photographer from eastern Montana during 1879 – 1931. Laton Alton Huffman arrived in Miles City, Montana Territory, December of 1879. He  had come to seek the recently vacated position of post photographer at nearby Fort Keogh where he was appointed post photographer, an unpaid position that provided a dirt floor log studio and an opportunity to make and sell photographs. He was 25.

There is quite a bit of information about L.A. Huffman located at a website dedicated to him. L.A. Huffman website. Additionally I found a website with several of his photos. They are wonderful. Probably some of the best western photos I have seen in a long time. Miles City Mueseum –  Gallery.

These are a few of his photos I’ve found.

If anyone has any other information or knows where I can learn a little more about him I’d sure appreciate any information. I will likely be taking a trip to Miles City this Summer to see what I can dig up. EXCITING!
