Comments

A part of the Brizard basket collection. The label on the back of this postal says: "A collection of Indians/baskets in Hoopa." This collection was housed in Arcata when it was finally sold about ten years ago [from Sept. 1969], by auction. After the auction, Rev. Brown, a peddler of Indian baskets, offered some of these baskets for sale to Indian basket dealers: a few of the baskets were also sold in a second-hand store in Eureka (Notebook XXXVI:136). This postal is a contact print from a larger 4" by 5" negative photographed by A. W. Ericson of Arcata (died 1926). This postal could be a contact print off of either of two Ericson glass plate negatives now held in the Humboldt County Collection of the Humboldt State University Library: their numbers in the latter collection are "A1' and "A33."
