Henry Hamilton Bennett
Brief biography, in most instances from the Union List of Artist Names® Online:
Born 15 January 1843; died 1 January 1908. Bennett was the nephew of the photographer G.H. Houghton. In 1865, Bennett purchased a photography business in Kilbourn, Wisconsin. After his death, his wife ran the business "H.H. Bennett Studio" until 1949 at which time it was taken over by his daughters. While Bennett's wife, Evaline Marshall Bennett ran the portrait studio, Bennett photographed the landscape around Kilbourn and the Wisconsin River. Many of Bennett's images were used for the tourist trade. He photographed for the railroad and allowed his images to be used to promote local attractions. In the 1880s Bennett produced a series of views of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and another set of stereoviews of the Winnebago Indians.
