General NotesAn interior photograph of a European-American man, identified as Lee Moorhouse, standing in a room filled with Native American ceremonial objects and general artifacts.

Two walls of the room can be discerned. The wall to the left of the man shows an open door to what appears to be a small storage cabinet. There is a book on the cabinet and a paper attached to the open door. Behind the cabinet are two chairs, one of which is a rocking chair. Behind the chairs is what appears to be a couch; there is a Native-American blanket laying on it. All along the left wall are various Native American artifacts, including a headdress and hand drums. There is a deer's head mounted on the wall with a painting or photograph under it. To the right of the man is a full size deer mount. Behind the man and mounted deer are various tables and a chair. On the rear wall are hung three American flags, two of which show 48 stars. Below the flags are various Native American artifacts, mounted antlers, and several swords.
