The attached photo is from the Smithsonian files. There is no identifiers with the online catalog, but the data is ca. 1879. The three men are brothers (l-r) - Young Bull Bear, Oscar Bull Bear, and Richard Davis. This photograph may identify the unknown man sitting 2nd from the left. Possibly Oscar Bull Bear rather than Young Bull Bear. And on the back row, what do you think - age-progression for the man in the tan coat. Richard? Possibilities, only. I did not know of the family involvement in the delegation, but it is possible. I'll have to research.

I think the person in the 1899 photo middle row second from the left is John Eastman brother of Charles Eastman, the person in the back row third from the left is Jim Swan and next to him forth from the left is Justin Black Eagle.

If you go to pahma.berkeley.edu/delphi and type in "17-41" in the search box, you will link to a portrait of "Bull Bear, Southern Cheyenne" painted by Joseph Henry Sharp. The card catalog indicates that this Bull Bear was educated at Carlisle, which means that it is OSCAR Bull Bear rather than YOUNG Bull Bear. There is no date associated with the card catalog entry, however, in 1900 a series of Sharp's paintings of Plains Indians were exhibits at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. In the portrait, Oscar Bull Bear's face and braid decoration clearly resembles the face and braid decoration of the individual seated 2nd from the left in the Cheyenne/Arapaho Delegation of 1899. The seated individual 5th from the left (4th from the right) is almost certainly Young Bull Bear and the man in the tan, light-colored coat standing in the back is almost certainly Richard Davis. Deitmar has a page set up for Bull Bear which shows a photograph of the two brothers, Richard Davis and Young Bull Bear. (For some reason, I am not able to post a photograph.)
