Stockbridge Chief John W. Quinney in 1849
John W. Quinney
John Quinney first visited Wisconsin in 1822 as a delegate for the Stockbridge tribe who were attempting to purchase land from the Menominee. Quinney was instrumental in organizing the removal of the Stockbridge to Wisconsin, and for several years, served as a representative of the tribe in negotiations with Congress. Dr. Amos C. Hamlin Jr. painted this portrait of Quinney in 1849.
