[[centered]] COLLECTIONS ACQUIRED [[/centered]]

Undoubtedly the greatest collection obtained by the Museum since its foundation was the purchase of the Clarence B. Moore collection of southeastern American archaeology from The Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia. This collection representing the workof over thirty years of Mr. Moore will never be equaled from the locations where it was collected. It has long been known as one of the great outstanding collections of American archaeology ever made and comprises about fifteen thousand specimens. The Museum is to be greatly felicitated upon this acquisition, as no other institution will ever have as representative a collection from the localities mentioned.

The Museum has also acquired various ethnological collections from Guatemala and Panama, the Cherokee of South Carolina, the Wampanoag of Massachusetts, the Nascapee of Labrador, and the Tlingit of Alaska.

Among the archaeological collections obtained by the Museum was material from Peru, Mexico, Idaho, Oregon and Texas.
