Photographic portrait of Galen Clark, the first white man in Yosemite Valley, [s.d.]. Mr. Clark sits in front of his cabin's fireplace in his rocking chair, facing to the left. He is dressed in a shirt, pants and vest while his hat sits on the floor to the side of his chair. He is bald and sports a long, white beard. A kettle has been hung inside the fireplace, over whose mantle a clock has been mounted among other brick-a-brac. A poster mounted near a rifle to the left reads "Recruits WANTED for the United States Army. Able-bodied men of good character".
