Custodial History note
Custodial History note
Some photographs collected in the Bureau of American Ethnology, but most appear to have been donated directly to the US National Museum (some by Victor Justice Evans and W. W. Anderson). 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 had not yet been processed.
