James Cooley Field was a commercial photographer in Tampa, Florida. He is buried at Oaklawn Cemetery in downtown Tampa. Field came to Tampa in hopes that the climate would help cure his wife Nannie's tuberculosis. She died of the disease and daughter Alice Maud died not long afterwards. The name of Field's company, Field & Morast, appears on many of the early photographs of Tampa. Field sold out to his partner in 1897 and moved to Six Mile Creek[disambiguation needed] where he became a saloon operator. He was arrested for selling liquor without a license in 1899.[1]
