Custodial History

The blanket was presented to Benjamin Cluff, president of Brigham Young Academy (BYA), as a gift during his expedition to South America from 1900 to 1902. When Benjamin Cluff resigned as president of BYA in 1903, the blanket was left with his successor, George H. Brimhall. Brimhall's son, Golden, donated the blanket to the Brigham Young University Archives in January 1975.
