Type: Photographer
Artist Information: Henry Buehman was a German-born American photographer and politician. After completing his apprenticeship, Buehman traveled to the American West, where he worked and traveled before settling in Tucson, Arizona Territory. There he purchased a portrait studio and operated a financially successful photography business. Periodic trips through the surrounding areas allowed Buehman to compile a large portfolio of scenic and Native American images in addition to his portrait work. His accomplishments as a photographer led to opportunities in other fields and Buehman eventually became the mayor of Tucson from 1895 till 1899.Buehman died from pneumonia on December 19, 1912.   Following his death, Tucson acquired approximately 65,000 negatives showing the city's people and surrounding areas.   After his death, Buehman's son Albert assumed control of Buehman Studio until his retirement in 1949.   Albert's son Remick then took over the studio before selling it two years later.  Over 250,000 negatives produced by three generations of Buehmans were purchased by the Arizona Historical Society in 1967.   Buehman Canyon in the Santa Catalina mountains is named in his honor.
