Quartz, flint, and stone arrowheads and projectile points; one gray-brown and six quartz arrowheads; stone projectile point and blade.
According to accession records, these points were found during the early 1900's by Reginald P. Bolton, William L. Calver, and others at Native American campsites in Washington Heights, Manhattan. They were formerly in the collection of Oscar T. Barck, the last surviving member of the Field Exploration Committee.
