Are you or someone you know a collector?

Marjorie Rhodes-Ousley, associate director for CSUEB's CE Smith Museum of Anthropology poses the question as the museum prepares for a spring exhibition on collecting, the objects themselves, the evolution of the phenomenon, and the psychology of the behavior. 

Rhodes-Ousley is interested in borrowing all types of collections from members of the CSUEB community for display in the secure museum gallery. The exhibit runs from March through June 2011. 

Contact Rhodes-Ousley by Nov 30 if you have a collection for consideration.  No collection is too humble and no background story too strange to be considered!
