Blair S. Williams - a Trustee of the Museum, has          
                    given during the fiscal year 
                    a most valuable collection 
                    of 401 specimens of   
                    archaeology from various 
                    states. There are many 
                    unique specimens in this 
                    collection of which the
                    Museum had no 
                    representation.
