Valuable Signal Drum on Exhibit

The Peabody Museum has just placed on exhibition in its South American Room a signal drum from the region of the Upper Amazon, presented to the University by Dr. A. H. Rice, who has already given several valuable collections to the museum. The drum is constructed of a single log, hollowed by burning and scraping and originally stood before one of the communal houses of the Tucano Indians in northeast Peru near the Nanpes river.
