Field Museum Library Digital Collections

About this collection

In 1891, Professor Frederic Ward Putnam, Director of Department M of the World’s Columbian Exposition, hired Warren K. Moorehead to lead excavations at Mound Builder sites in Southern Ohio.  Putnam needed Moorehead to collect objects to exhibit at the Exposition.  He excavated at three sites in 1891 and 1892: Fort Ancient, Oregonia, and Anderson.  The Field Museum received Moorehead’s Ohio collection after the Exposition (Anthropology Accessions 31, 410, and 429).
