County, MI. The human remains (2004.46.2) were collected and kept as 
part of the Chapman Collection in Middleville, Michigan. The human 
remains were then acquired by Kalamazoo resident, Donald Boudeman, who 
collected Southwest Native American material culture in the first half 
of the twentieth century. In July 1961, years after her husband's 
death, Donna Boudeman donated the human remains and parts of Mr. 
Boudeman's collection to Michigan State University Museum. No known
