The Eskimo Tools in this collection are from the Favell Museum of Klamath Falls, Oregon.
The pieces were originally collected by Guy Gilbert of Kennewick Washington,

and his daughter Alma Eades of Fairbanks, Alaska.


Gene Favell purchased Mr. Gilberts collection of Columbia River and Eskimo artifacts

 in the early 1970's in order to display the pieces in the Favell Museum.

 

After Mr. Favell's death in 2001,the decision was made by Mrs. Favell to sell some artifacts that were no longer on display.
