Margaret Treadwell was a friend of Stieglitz’s niece Georgia Engelhard.

“This morning I photographed Margaret Treadwell, the successor here of Connie Garland.—I did pretty well.—One rather fine thing. I guess I have really learnt much in the last few years” (Stieglitz to Herbert Seligmann, 29 August 1921 [YCAL]).
