NOTE: Born in Borculo, Michigan in 1923 and 89 years old at the time of his passing, the owner of this artifact collection started collecting at the age of 9 on his Grandfathers farm and continued living and collecting Indian artifacts for the next 80 years in the West Michigan area. He had a great respect for the Native American way of life and this is reflected in the vast array of items in his collection. He befriended many local Native Americans and spent much time visiting and enjoying his many friends. He had the basement of his home set up as a fine Native American museum with the artifacts and other items displayed in a large number of nice display cases.
