Biographical or Historical Data:
In September 1875, a meeting was called in the rooms of the State Geologist in the Indiana Statehouse to form an archaeological association. Attendees were urged to bring relics of prehistoric man to contribute towards the formation of a State Archaeological Museum. At this meeting, the State Archeological Association of Indiana was formed. The mission of the State Archaeological Association of Indiana was to create a state museum, to have an annual meeting, and present research findings. This association's idea of a State Archaeological Museum was the precursor to the Indiana State Museum.
