Additional Details

Asa Rholston Hill (1888-1955) was born on the Six Nations reserve in Ohsweken, Ontario, and studied for the ministry at Denison University in Ohio in 1912. He did some lecturing in local towns (see the Zanesville Times Recorder, 7 August 1912, for example), and presumably used these cards to promote his appearances. He is depicted in a full-length portrait, in traditional garb with head-dress. None others traced in OCLC or at auction.
