Notes

Abstract:
There are two parts of this short film. The second part is virtually a repeat of the first part. These short clips show the extensive collection of over 50,000 early American Indian artifacts which Col. Leigh Moran Pearsall sold to the University of Florida in 1963. The film begins with the signing over by Col. Pearsall of his collection. He is seated and the man seated to his right is Harold B. Crosby (dean of University Relations). Two men stand behind them with E. A. Clayton, Col Pearsall's attorney, to the left and Dr. J. C. Dickinson, the director of the Florida State Museum, to the right. The next scene shows a very large table filled with artifacts with Pearsall and others viewing them. Another table is shown and then in the last scene Col. Pearsall and Dr. Dickinson are shown walking into a very large room which is filled with monumental artifacts. The short film and its repeat sequence document the transfer of this massive collection and also shows an overview of the more than 50,000 artifacts.
