"CUR" at the beginning of an image file name means that the image was created by a curatorial staff member. These study images may be digital point-and-shoot photographs, when we don\'t yet have high-quality studio photography, or they may be scans of older negatives, slides, or photographic prints, providing historical documentation of the object.
CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION The Hupa basketry hat (05.588.7464) is on the left in photograph and the Yurok basketry hat (05.588.7515) is on the right. When these hats were collected in 1905 they were treasured items of Hupa women and they remain so today. This basketry hat was collected by Stewart Culin directly from the weaver, Mary, when he saw it in her home.
