Provenance Maori Artifacts Collected by Rev. Alfred Fairbrother Lots 191-195, 197, 199, 202, 203 For an indepth history of Rev. Fairbrother, see R.F. Keam’s Dissolving Dream, 2004. In the 1880s my great-grandfather, Rev. Alfred Fairbrother, was living in New Zealand on expedition with the Baptist church to establish New Zealand’s first Baptist missionary. He lived in a small hand-made hut amongst a Maori tribe near Mt. Tarawera. In 1886, the eruption of the volcano “Mt. Tarawera” destroyed the small Maori village. When my great-grandfather’s time there was coming to a close, the chief of the tribe bestowed upon him these beautiful authentic hand-carved idols, weapons, and tools. Now over 100 years later, these artifacts have been passed down to me. As I have no descendants to pass them on to, I would like someone to appreciate and enjoy these wonderful pieces of history that stand before you. —Maida J. Minadeo

William Albert Kelly (1850-1930) Lots 328-331, 335, 337, 342-345 When in 1884 Civil Government was accorded Alaska, Mr. Kelly was the first commissioned teacher sent out by the Bureau of Education, Washington, D.C. For ten years he served as the Supervisor of Government Schools. For fourteen years he was superintendant of a training school at Sitka, Alaska. In 1892, under President Harrison’s administration, he served as United States Commissioner for the Southern District of Alaska.

Heard Family Lots 361, 362, 412, 428-430, 433-435 These Apache baskets were collected by Gen. John W. Heard (1860-1922), inherited by his youngest son, Gen. Townsend Heard, and have been in the family from the late 19th century until now. Gen. T. Heard left them to his wife, Rose Loring Heard, and they are being sold by her estate. J.W. Heard graduated from West Point in 1883 and was assigned for three years to the Arizona Territory as a young officer of the US Army 3rd Cavalry. It is known that he served in at least two posts there, Fort Thomas and Fort Grant. From 1886 to about 1887 he was posted on several frontier forts along the Rio Grande in western Texas, including Fort Davis, Fort Ringgold, and Fort Sam Houston. He collected a number of Native American items while he was there, including the baskets. Gen. Heard subsequently had a distinguished military career—he was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for valor in Cuba as an officer in the Spanish-American War, and became a general officer In WWI.
