Biographical or historical data
David F. Barry was born near Rochester, N.Y. in 1854. In 1861 he moved with his family to Wisconsin where as a teenager he began working for the itinerant photographer, O.S. Goff. In 1878, Goff hired Barry to work with him in his photographic gallery in Bismark, Dakota Territory and the two men eventually became business partners. Between 1878 and 1883, Barry traveled to Fort Buford, Fort Yates and other military installations in the Dakota Territory. During these trips, he photographed famous Native Americans including Sitting Bull, Rain in the Face, Gall, Red Cloud and Shooting Star. Barry also photographed some of the most important forts and battlefields associated with the Plains Indians Wars as well as military officers, soldiers, trappers and pioneers. In 1890, Barry returned to Superior, Wis., and opened a photographic gallery and studio dealing with his Dakota Territory photographs. He died in Superior, Wis. in 1934.
