Good ol' "Miss Anderson", a Nome school "marm" (a teacher). And she's got all the trappings OF an early 1900s school marm, doesn't she? The frumpy hair and clothing, no visible jewelry, a bit "long in the tooth", and wearing very sensible glasses. She was probably very tough and hard-nosed as a teacher, but a strong-willed, tough and sensible lady. This image was taken in 1913, and from related images, and the background of this image, is probable that she may have been employed to teach the Inuit children of the native camps on the shores in the northern section of Nome.
