"For 18 hours a week she (Susan Harris) worked at USU’s Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art, where she had received a Mountain West fellowship to create a ceramics catalog for the museum’s collection. “That was the time when Twain Tippetts had been director of the museum and he was collecting a lot of pottery from miscellaneous grad students and keeping no record whatsoever. It would be ‘Student pot no. 1‘, Student pot no. 2’ on the bottom of the pots.” So the catalog became an investigation. “If I could find out who did one, I could compare the style and the finger marks and the ridges and the handling of the clay and match it up with others.” All those credit hours in archeology were not wasted. “I wasn’t paid a whole lot to do that job, but I really enjoyed it.”
