FROM CARD: "SCALP. TAKEN BY NAG-KUM." From old 19th or early 20th century exhibit label with card: "Scalp - Disk of buffalo hide with hair on one side and a lining of red and blue flannel on the other. Numerous bunches of hair and a feather plume attached. Length, 15 inches."
Examined by Dr. Douglas Owsley, 9-15-2009, who comments: "Not a true scalp; 20 wrapped hair bundles tied to a circular disk of buffalo hide."
From card: "Large skin, long, black hair attached. The catalog number, collector, and locality ("British America") is written on skin itself. The catalog book does not list it, having no entry under that number. Numbers 105012-015 are included on the Baird donor card, however, as being one of his accessions."
