From the Estate of Diane Anderson.
Diane was an avid collector of native arts and crafts for over 35 years. Originally from Vancouver Island, Diane resided in Toronto where she worked as a professional document examiner for many years. Diane’s collection grew to over 50 pieces, which were carefully selected over the years. A portion of Diane’s collection, which included a rare Chilkat Blanket, was donated to the Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia following her passing in 2014.
