W. and M. Koerner Ceramics Collection

Series consists of photographs, object descriptions, background summaries and bibliographic citations documenting the W. and M. Koerner Ceramics Collection. The binders comprise seven volumes organized according to region and time period, as well as a catalogue of the collection. The additional textual material is a copy of the collection catalogue in the binders; there are some differences between the two versions and it is unclear which is the more recent version.

W. and M. Koerner Collection Purchases

Series consists of files related to purchases of items for the W. and M. Koerner Collection. The arrangements for these purchases were handled by Eugene Horvath, who acted as a sort of personal assistant for the Koerners' ceramics collection. Files contain documents and photographs related to purchases.

Northwest Coast Indian Art

These albums were compiled by Madeline Bronsdon Rowan, who was one of the curators at the Museum of Anthropology.

Koerner Collection Photographs
