Glenn R. Aultman ( Dec. 14, 1904 – Nov. 15, 2000) was the son of Oliver O. Aultman (1867-1953) of Trinidad, Colorado. Oliver Aultman, a Trinidad banker, started the Aultman Studio after repossessing the business from J.F. Cook. To recoup his losses, Aultman opened the studio himself in October 1889. Aultman married his receptionist and hand-colorist, Jane Rowland Snodgrass (Jennie) in 1902. Glenn was their only son. Glenn worked with his parents and in 1925 formally joined his father at the studio as a darkroom assistant. After Oliver Aultman suffered a stroke in 1952, Glenn Aultman took over the business and remained its chief photographer for the next fifty years. The studio was primarily known for its portraits, many of which are in the museum’s collection.
