Excerpt from Catalogue and Notes of the Oronhyatekha Historical Collection
As a Chieftain of the Mohawks, one Of the Six Nations, it was but natural that our Chief should have early directed his attention to preserving evidences of historic and pre-historic Indian days, and b... y means of his special opportunities have thus saved from dispersion so many objects of lasting interest. His travels around the world in planting the standard of Independent Forestry, and its beneficent advantages, have taken him through many lands and so have brought together evidences Of their history, taste, typical habits and natural beauties. All these, to the observing eye, will be of educative value.
Many gifts, personal to himself, have also been here deposit ed. Those, by whose good-will they were granted, will pleasant ly renew acquaintance with these historic reminiscences in the History of our Order.
The Catalogue and Notes on the Collection do not purport to cover or describe every article. It is trusted that by drawing attention to the more salient ones, and by'short topical nota tions on some, additional interest may be given to what is seen by the eye, that a collecting mind may be encouraged, and a desire for further information be aroused. Education, increased interest in history, nature, and art, and beyond all, thought and reading in the Home, the centre Of every Forester's heart, may, it is hoped, he helped by a short study in this collection and so gladden the generous donor who has transferred his valued treasures to the general use.
