By 1894, Eickemeyer (1862-1932) was among America’s best-known amateur photographers who was a founding member of the Yonkers (New York) Camera Club. Along with Stieglitz, Eickemeyer had the honor of being one of the first Americans elected to the British Linked Ring. Along with photographer James L. Breese, he initially worked at the Carbon Studio, which they founded in Manhattan. Later, he became partners with the photographer Charles Davis, creating Davis and Eickemeyer. In 1900, the Camera Club of New York, of which he was a non-resident member, put on a one-man show of his work which totaled over 150 prints. 1.
