    THE KRAMER COLLECTION

    Our fourth Tuesday program on September 26th saw a full house of members and guests eager to hear Dr. Brad Logan, Kansas State University anthropologist and expert on Great Plains archaeology, speak on our Kramer collection of artifacts found on the upper Nine Mile/ Wildhorse Creek area. Other sites along the Nine Mile/Stranger Creek watershed provided additional information.

    Frank "Junior" Kramer and his wife Barbara donated over 800 prehistoric artifacts to our historical society. Dr. Logan solicited the help of his students to identify each item, measure, weigh, and tell which type of stone it was made from. (The type of material used to make artifacts is an important piece of information because it suggests where the item was made). This took more than six months to accomplish. The artifacts were returned with several papers written by his students about these artifacts.
