That’s a question that the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies art administrator Colin Thompson would like answered. The Butler Center has been given two large, framed pencil drawings by the Museum of Discovery, which is deaccessioning its collection thanks to a mission overhaul, signed by Kate Hannebaum, one in 1892 and the other in 1893. The fragile drawings (one is damaged) are on paper mounted on canvas, and depict Arkansas hunters. They look like drawings made from daguerreotypes or some other photographic medium.

Any ideas?

P.S.: I should mention that the drawing above is titled at the bottom center of the drawing “Hunting in Arkansas.”
