Lived in San Francisco; photographed California, Yosemite, and Oregon using mammoth camera and stereoscopic camera. Went into debt and had his negatives auctioned off; restarted taking photos but remained poor, with failing eyesight; lost his work again in the 1906 earthquake and fire (which also broke Ansel Adams' nose), and was committed to the Napa State Hospital for the insane in 1910, where he remained until death.
