Bartlett Collection

Dr. Harley Harris Bartlett (1886-1960) was a professor of botany at the University of Michigan and director of the university’s botanical gardens. During his botanical research trips to Asia, he assembled diverse collections of ethnographic material. His sister, Hazel Bartlett, donated over 300 ethnographic objects from Indonesia, Taiwan, and the Philippines to the Logan Museum in 1961. Significant material includes textiles, carved figures, and manuscripts from the Batak people of northern Sumatra (84 objects), a variety of objects from the Moro, Igorot, Ilonggot, Mangyan, and Ifugao people of the Philippines (127 objects), and artifacts made by the Paiwan, Atayal, and Yami indigenous people of Taiwan (25 objects).
