Notes on distribution: 

An email to Colorado College in May 2017 confirmed that there had been a museum on campus - Palmer Hall - between 1903 and 1977. The year of its foundation and the date of distribution just the year before (1902) seems to indicate that the EEF were one source for the foundation collection. When the museum was disbanded some of the objects were transferred to Denver Museum of Science and Nature. An email to the Anthropology Collections Manager at Denver Museum of Science and Nature in May 2017 confirmed the presence of about 70 Egyptian objects that had been received from Colorado, which were only processed in 2013. Listed amongst the material are small finds from Tell Denneh, Deir el-Bahari, Hu, and the Fayum which are likely to be from EEF excavations.
