A. Frank Randall

Based in Wilcox, Arizona Territory, Frank Randall traveled as a correspondent and photographer for Leslie’s Magazine from 1883-1887. There is considerable confusion over the authorship of photographs of Apaches by Randall, and those taken by another well-known photographer of the time - Ben Wittick. It has not been determined whether trade, sale, or partnership occurred between them, or if outright piracy is the best explanation.
