6 The Thomas S. Triss collection of Plains Indians ethnology was presented through the generosity of Mr. Harmon W. Hendricks. This collection was made about 1850, in the vicinity of Fort Laramie, Wyoming, and is a most valuable addition to the Museum from that vicinity. It contains many quilled and painted shirts, the very oldest type of beaded and quilled bags, etc., and a fine buffalo hide shield. The Timoleon Flores collection, consisting of very unusual ethnological specimens from the Department of Oriente, Ecuador, was given to the Museum through the generosity of Mr. Harmon W. Hendricks, as was also the George G. Hale collection of archeology from Fairfield County, Connecticut, and a collection of pottery from Ancon, Peru, besides four smaller collections. The Charles R. Carr collection of Rhode Island archeology presented by Mrs. Charles R. Carr. This collection, consisting of approximately 1,000 specimens, is the result of the late Charles R. Carr's excavations, covering a number of years at the Indian cemetery located on Burr's Hill, Warren, Rhode Island, and is a most valuable and interesting collection, consisting not alone of aboriginal specimens but also a large number of trade articles of an early Colonial period which were found in the different graves. There are also numerous specimens of aboriginal weaving and basketry which are excessively rare from the northeastern United States. Mr. F. Kingsbury Curtis presented the Museum with two pottery jars found at Greenwood Lake, New Jersey, which are unique. The W. J. Mackay collection, presented through the generosity of Mr. Mackay, consisting of approximately 3,500 specimens, is of archeology from New York State and other locations, the most valuable part of the collection being from excavations made near Niagara Falls, of an old Neuter village site and cemetery. The Theodoor de Booy collection of ethnology, from the Mocoa tribe, the Mocoa branch of the Motilone stock, of northwestern Venezuela, presented by Mrs. Thea Heye, consists of about 500 specimens. As Mr. de Booy was the first collector to visit these Indians, this is a most important collection. The Gladys M. Skinner Memorial collection, presented by Mr. Alanson B. Skinner, consists of archeological specimens of interest from different local sites, and is a valuable addition to our quickly growing collection of local material. The William R. Blackie collection of Westchester County, New York archeology was presented by him. Many of the sites on which these specimens were obtained have since been built over, thus making Westchester County material most difficult to obtain. The following made gifts to the Museum of specimens, photographs, books, etc: [[left column]] Mr. A. P. Angell Mr. Reginald Pelham Bolton Mr. William R.
