This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in New Jersey in 1826.  Dyer was a daguerreotypist in Philadelphia in 1854.  The following year he moved to California and had a photo gallery in Nevada City where he made daguerreotypes for the miners who sent them to their loved ones in the East.  After establishing a studio in San Francisco in 1857, he worked there until 1881.  Moving across the bay, he was active in Oakland and Alameda until 1898.  His track is then lost. 

Exh:  Mechanics' Inst. (SF), 1858 (photos).
