  1. As interesting and revealing as ever, Ardis! Do you happen to know any more about Indian Relief Societies? I wonder if any of those items (which must be worth a small fortune today) the Relief Society had for sale have survived. Thanks, again.

  2. I am wondering if in the picture of the Oakland MIA officers is none other then Elder J. Golden Kimball? He might be sitting to the left of the Mission President Elder Joseph W. McMurrin who is seated to the left of Pres. Heber J. Grant

  3. What beautiful quilts, pots, and baskets on display from the Papago (Tohono O’odom) RS! How wonderful to see their own art and designs promoted in 1920!

  4. My comment will make three out of four responses to this post about those items for sale by the Papago Relief Society. Those are amazing. A quick look at Ebay shows baskets of that vintage and size running in the $500-$900 range. Quilts of the same date and size, if in good condition, seem to be priced similarly.

    And, on another topic, it looks like Cameron wins the prize for “spot the general authority.” : )
