...............Fred N. Clark, owner of the studio, recognizing the historic value of photographs beyond their initial commercial use, purchased the negative collections of two other Portland studios, the George M. Weister Company, and Arthur M. Prentiss' Oregon Commercial Studio. Weister's photography began in 1895 as a sideline to his photographic supply business, but by 1914 he had become a full-time photographer. He traveled widely, and by 1907 he had photographed in many parts of the west coast from Los Angeles to Alaska. In later years he traveled extensively in Oregon, leaving a view of life in the state without strong commercial overtones.
Arthur M. Prentiss was a partner in Benjamin A. Giflord's studio until he started his own business in 1920. Even though he traveled often to the Oregon Coast and in the Columbia Gorge, he was much more associated with activities in Portland than was Weister. The negatives at the University of Oregon follow Prentiss' work through1925, although the Oregon Commercial Studio continued to operate for eight yearsafter that.......................

Arthur Prentiss
No conocia muchos datos de este fotégrafo y por ello hice busquedas en las bibliotecas americanas, especialmente del Estado de Oregon.
Encontré, como dato principal, que colaboro en la FSA, uno de los archivos fotográficos mas importantes de la historia de la fotografia.
