Pieces selected for close examination were chosen because they were accompanied by documentary evidence of their cultural origins or subsequent ownership. Over the next decade, data from this early work were extended through the analysis of other textiles and through further archival work. In the early 1980s, the identification of a series of significant dyes was accomplished with the aid of Dr. David Wenger, then associated with the Univerity of Colorado Medical School in Denver. The following four sections detail the major thrusts of Wheat's data-gathering process: the review of collection records, the description of the textiles, ethnohistorical research, and the identification of dyes.
