      EVENT DETAILS
      Northeastern Indiana Historical Native American Series - 3rd Program

      This family-oriented program will provide a discussion and hands-on introduction to the J.P. Dolan Native American Collection. Eli Lilly’s lifelong interest in archaeology was sparked by meeting Dolan in 1929 to view his collection. Lilly was later instrumental in creating a standard of archaeology for the state of Indiana, which is still largely in place today. The Syracuse-Wawasee Historical Museum has been able to have the collection properly identified and catalogued, courtesy of a recent Heritage Support Grant provided by the Indiana Historical Society, and made possible by Lilly Endowment. The program features three presenters: Jamie Clemons, director of the Syracuse-Wawasee Historical Museum; Ann Garceau, who was the Heritage Support Grant coordinator and developed the Museum’s educational exhibit; Jeff Mesaros, the author of The Art of Flintknapping.

      Cost: Free - Free event.
