River Basin Surveys Papers, No. 10: Archeological Investigations at the Tuttle Creek Dam, Kansas

Author(s): Robert B. Cumming, Jr.

Year: 1958


The Missouri Basin Project of the Smithsonian Institution River Basin Surveys, conducted archeological excavations in the construction area of the Tuttle Creek Dam site from June 10 to June 30, 1953. These field activities and the present report resulting from them were a part of the Inter-Agency Archeological Salvage Program. This program combines the cooperative efforts of the Smithsonian Institution, the National Park Service, the Corps of Engineers, the Bureau of Reclamation, and various State and local agencies. Details of the organization, background, and accomplishments of this program are published elsewhere (e. g., Brew and others, 1947; Wedel, 1947; Roberts, 1952) and need not be detailed here. Lack of funds prevented extensive fieldwork in the season of 1953 in any of the localities of the Missouri River Basin. However, some money was available and this was diverted to the areas of most critical salvage needs. Tuttle Creek was one of these.
