The Miles Collection

The Miles Collection was purchased by Eastern New Mexico University from Fred Miles in 1966. Prior to this agreement the collection was displayed in the Texaco Service Station in Roswell, NM and contained 2500 geological, archaeological, and anthropological specimens. In 1969, the Miles Museum was opened on the campus of Eastern New Mexico University. Additional specimens have been obtained through donations and incorporated into the Miles collection.

The catalog records before you were made accessible with the support from the New Mexico Humanities Council.
