From the estate of Dr. Arthur Woodward (1898-1986) of Patagonia, AZ. A notable anthropologist, archaeologist and historian, Woodward was curator of history and archaeology for the Los Angeles County Museum (1928-1953) and also taught at the University of Arizona (Historical Archaeology, 1964). Arthur was among the first to excavate Casa Grande Ruins (Compound F, early 1930s) and accompanied Admiral Byrd on a secret mission to the South Pacific. His fascinating life is documented in the book "Rubaboo," written by his nephew, Ken Woodward. The Guy B. Woodward Museum in Ramona, CA (where Arthur spent his childhood) is named after Art’s younger brother.

Hexagon in shape and made of solid cast iron, this hefty paperweight has historical significance.
Dimensions: 3 in. hexagon, .5 in. thick
