Mrs. Heye donated to the Museum many other specimens, among which are ethnological specimens from the Iroquois, Dakota Sioux, Zuni, Makah, Pomo and other tribes. Among them is a unique specimen from the Moki of Arizona - an elk skin painted with mythological figures. She also presented archaeological specimens from Kentucky, New Mexico, Arizona and California. Miss Edith Hendricks generously presented to the Museum a valuable collection of 112 very rare ethnological specimens from the Oriente Province of Ecuador, the Amazon River, Brazil, and French Guiana; also a collection of Tlingit and Haida material which contained many unique specimens. A very valuable collection made over thirty years ago, consisting of about 400 rare specimens of ethnology from the United States, was presented to the Museum by Mr. Charles F. Nesler. It would be impossible to replace this collection with any amount of money, as many of the specimens contained in it are unique. Mr. W. de F. Haynes presented the Museum with a collection of 103 specimens from Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee. These specimens are the finest collected by the late Mr. J.B. Nicklin. Among them are many unique shell objects, particularly large masks of that material. In addition to the above, Mr. Haynes most generously presented us with a collection of 918 archaeological specimens found by himself in Fairfield County, South Carolina. Mr. M. Moultrie Cromwell gave to the museum his collection of 96 archaelogical specimens from New Mexico, consisting mainly of shell and stone objects. Mr. Homer E. Sargent presented the Museum with ten extremely rare baskets from California and also an example of a goat hair blanket from Frazer River, the art of making which is now extinct. Mrs. Ruth H. Greiner, of Seattle, Washington presented the Museum with an archaeological collection of 46 specimens in which are two of the rarely-met-with monolithic stone clubs from the State of Washington. Mr. George H. Pepper, of the Museum staff, has presented numerous ethnological specimens from the Eskimo, Navaho and Hopi Indians.
