Custodial History note
Custodial History note
Part of this material was originally accessioned and cataloged into the Division of Physical Anthropology and part was accessioned into the National Museum as part of accession 42191. This collection was found in 1972, along with other collections in Photo Lot 87-2, as something which had been set aside as a "problem collection," though this may only reflect that it was unprocessed.
