Fulton most graciously consented that some of his funds, already presented to the Museum, be used for archaeological research in the little known district of Owyhee Conunty. In spite of adverse climatic conditions and dangerous terrain, the expedition, under the leadership of Mr. Godfrey J. Olsen, was most successful in obtaining a representative collection from rock-shelters and caves.

[[underline]] Ecuador.[[/underline]] Captain E. Erskine Loch returned with a large and valuable collection made from the Ssabela, Sari-yacu, Canelos, Jivaros, and Zaparo tribes, which he presented to the Museum. The Captain made another short trip to Ecuador in the fall, and made an additional gift of specimens from the Mainas Indians, including a very fine example of their large signal drums. 

[[underline]] Honduras.[[/underline]] A collection of ethnology from the little known Xicaque Indians, made by Dr. Wolfgang von Hagen, has been received, and is a valuable addition, as the Museum had no specimens from these people.

[[underline]] Mexico.[[/underline]] Donald B. Cordry has made a most complete collection from the Huichol Indians in the State of Nyarit, besides obtaining material from their neighbors, the Tarahumara and Otomi.
