FORMERLY PART OF THE FANNIE A. WEEKS COLLECTION: SEE CARD FOR CAT. NO. 272216. PIPE STEM THAT GOES WITH THIS BOWL IS #359671. From card: "T-shape." Card for 272216 identifies this pipe as having belonged to "Sow-a-wick [a.k.a. Sow-er-wick or Sowerwick], Chief."
Records indicate E272216 was exchanged to Anton Heitmuller in 1915. Heitmuller must have subsequently sold or traded it to Victor Justice Evans, who then donated it back to the museum in 1931, and it was recataloged as E359671 and E359723A. Heitmuller and Evans were both Washington, D.C. collectors during the same time period.
