Description

Research notes

The Foundation Donation comprises the items from L. P. Winterbotham's personal collection, which were donated to the University of Queensland in 1948 and form the basis of the Anthropology Museum.

"Collected by Miss Cullen's brother while on trading schooners as far back as 1887, and held in her possession for sixty years before donating to the museum." [catalogue card note]
