William E. Irwin was born in Red Oak, Missouri in 1871. It is believed he learned photography in Indian Territory or Texas in the early 1890s. Irwin operated photography studios first in Chickasha, Indian Territory, and later in Silver City and Bisbee, Arizona, where he operated a studio from 1904 to 1922. His photographs consist primarily of portrait photographs, but images that document aspects of late 19th century American Indian life and material culture are also included. Notable persons pictured in his portofolio include Geronimo and Quanah Parker.
Annie Berry, also known as Kiowa Annie, wife of Kiowa Apache Tennison Berry, poses in a beautiful buckskin dress trimmed extensively with elk teeth and rawhide fringes.
