Accruals and Additions

August 5, 2015, a photo was received from Brandon Sexton, former registrar for the Yellowstone NP Museum collection, returning a photo of Frederic Remington to the BBHC. The photo was held by the BBHC prior to 1975, but was returned April 16, 1975 to the NPS under the impression the photo was theirs. The photo was returned to BBHC in 2015 because it could not be confirmed if the photograph was taken at YNP or not.
