Major John Dougherty
Not available online
TitleMajor John Dougherty
AbstractChapter about Major John Dougherty (1789-1860), "an honorary 'major' by virtue of his role as Indian agent," a native of Kentucky and resident upon retirement of Liberty, Missouri. Photo and description of his career in western exploration and Indian relations, starting in 1809 with Manuel Lisa and including the co-establishment of the "first American fort on Pacific drainage, in 1811," dealings with Sacajawea, William Ashley, Joseph Robidoux, et al., moving to Liberty in 1855 and building his estate called "Multnomah," and "leaving his freighting and sutlering affairs to Lewis" B. Dougherty, his son.
NotesPage 15: "Until its destruction recently, this [the John Dougherty residence] was a showplace of decaying grandeur: Architecturally, Multnomah is done along Palladian lines, more popularly known as 'Classic Revival,' a style popular for country houses and villas in Europe since it was introduced by Andreas Palladio in the Sixteenth Century.'"
