Collection History:

Edward H. Davis owned a ranch outside San Diego, California, and became fascinated with local Indian people. The collection of Native objects he developed attracted the attention of George Heye, who purchased many items from Davis and hired him as a field collector in 1916. Photographs by Davis from southern California and northern Mexico probably accompanied the objects he sold to or collected for MAI.
