From: Robert Coody Robert.Coody@nau.edu

I posted a message to SWA a couple of years ago
relating to our New Age Collection, which would be
of interest to law enforcement and social research.
We had seven boxes of material. Well, the collection
has grown to 60 boxes of material of regional
interest. This collection is officially recognized
by the Dean of the library due to the attention it
now gets. In fact, a graduate student here has taken
an interest in the collection and is conducting
research into the misrepresentation of the cultural
record by the New Age phenomena. The New Agers are
hitting archaeological sites fairly hard in the Verde
Valley and so more people are taking an interest in
this manuscript collection.
