Don Begins Collecting Bossons
Don has been collecting Bossons for more than 40 years. His first Bossons was Punjabi. Annual holidays and special events were then celebrated with more Bossons gifts.

Soon, Don was given a cooperative nod from his wife, Barbara, to purchase all the remaining current issues as a special reward for being promoted to full professor of music at New Mexico State University (NMSU) in 1979, and currently Professor Emeritus, New Mexico State University (1969-1994).

Since then he has been challenged to collect every Bossons. But because he wanted his own collection to be perfect in every respect, he needed to learn as much as possible about restoring gypsum plaster artworks.

His research and study are a labor of love. Though new discoveries are being made everyday, according to current knowledge, there are only a dozen or so Bossons remaining until his personal collection is complete.

Concerning the The African Drummer on the right it is one of a kind and was sent to Dr. Hardisty by his close friend and associate, tbe late Ken Potts,  who worked at Bossons from the age of 18 until retirement in 1996.  While there, Ken became Historian and Factory Manager.
