Texas Tech University has acquired the unique collection of Mexi-
can Indian costumes and textiles and the collection of some 3,500
photographs compiled by Donald and Dorothy Cordry of Cuernavaca,
Morelos, Mexico. The Cordrys spent over thirty years gathering their
collection, travelling extensively throughout the country, even reach-
ing villages so remote that they were noted on no known maps. Many
of the costumes which they collected and photographed have since
vanished from the cultural scene, and their collection assumes added
importance from that fact. Representative photographs from the col-
lection and the Cordry's detailed and scholarly discussion and draw-
ings of the costumes were combined in a large and beautiful volume
published last year by the University of Texas Press under the title of
Mexican Indian Costumes. The purchase of the collection was made
possible through gifts from anonymous donors.
