This biography from the Archives of AskART:
"Mrs. Gilbert's love of the American Indian caused her to faithfully set down in color portraits that which is intended to preserve the identity, nature and individuality of the American Indian. Not only are her paintings fine portraits, but they are remarkably interesting because of their historical, as well as romantic connections with the history and development of the Northwest, the Columbia and Willamette Valleys" (Jerome D. Adamson, Jr., Art Collector, Downey, California, 1971.)

Carrie M. Gilbert and her writer husband, J.C. Gilbert spent much of their lives studying the culture of the native Indians of the Pacific Northwest. Most of her artwork is dated between 1900 and 1915, and she painted in oil (on canvas and rawhide), watercolors as well as pen and ink drawings. She illustrated her husband's book The Way of the Indian, copyrighted in 1902. She and her husband lived in Salem, Oregon and she exhibited regionally and received awards for her paintings.

Submitted in 2002 by Kent Sumner, Sculptor and Assistant Director of Student Affairs, Oregon State University. In this position he also managed and inventoried the Student Union's art collection and in that process found "on the wall of the American Indian Room an on-hide-painted piece from the early 1900s by Oregon artist Carrie Gilbert" (http://oregonstate.edu/studentaffairs/kent-sumner)

Addendum:
According to Mark Humpal, the Oregonian newspaper gave a death date of June 2, 1956 to Carrie Monroe Gilbert.
