ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Austin E. Quinney, brother of John Quinney, was a leader in the Stockbridge tribe's move from New York to Wisconsin in the 1820s. Quinney helped negotiate a series of treaties to secure and protect land for the tribe, who were under constant threat of dispossession. The Stockbridge and Munsee tribes moved to a reservation in Shawano County in 1854. Dr. Amos C. Hamlin Jr. painted this portrait of Quinney in 1849. This image is one of approximately 50,000 contained in the Society's portrait files. Both Wisconsin and non-Wisconsin people, and notable and less known individuals are represented in these files.
