Pollard Archaeological Research Collection now available in Feinberg
The Dr. Gordon C. Pollard Archaeological Research Collection is now available for research in Feinberg Special Collections.
This collection contains materials from the now-retired SUNY distinguished teaching professor’s major projects in North and South America, including his studies of 19th-century Plattsburgh bottles and Clinton Prison’s early association with the iron industry.
The collection includes field notes, original maps, artifact drawings, slides, photographs, published resources and aerial photographs that aided in his field work.
The collection also contains the field notebooks of the students who participated in his summer field courses at the Rickert-Allen farm site in Peru, N.Y., in 1982; the Caldwell mine site at Clayburg, N.Y. in 1984; and the four summers of excavations at the Clintonville forge site between 1994 and 2001.
