Impressive Kerr County Arrowhead Collection

I was impressed by the magnitude of this Kerrville arrowhead collection, from this press photo dating around 1967.  Serious collectors abound here, but then again, there are a lot of old stone tools to be found in our area.  (Full disclosure: yours truly has never found a complete arrowhead in many years of looking.)
If anyone recognizes this collector, please let me know in the comments section below.

  1. In the 1960's, when the land at the base of Tivy Mountain was being excavated for development purposes (building residential areas, such as, Donna Kay Drive and Barbara Ann Street), a very large Native American mound was found.

    I found one arrowhead; other people found more.

    One interesting note is that we found layers (one foot, or more, deep) of snail shells. Apparently, the snails were eaten and the shells were discarded into a "snail shell dump."
