A Culture Lives On in Dyer Collection
Not available online
TitleA Culture Lives On in Dyer Collection
AbstractThis article describes the Dyer Collection of Indian artifacts currently owned by the Kansas City Musuem. The collection was amassed by Col. Daniel B. Dyer and his wife Ida during the late 19th century. It at one time resided in the Kansas City Public Library at the Main branch at 9th and Locust. Currently the collection is kept at the Union Station and may be displayed there in the near future.
NotesAccording to Bill Mercer, curator of Native American Art at the Portland Art Museum, "it is the largest collection of Cheyenne Arapaho material from that time period in any museum in the world."
