The Kalamazoo Mummy
The Kalamazoo mummy was originally brought to San Francisco in 1894 as part of an Egyptian exhibit for the California Mid-Winter Exposition. When the exposition closed on July 4th of 1894, the Egyptian delegation sold the mummy to the colorful San Franciscan, Nathan Joseph, a collector and owner of The Old Curiosity Shop.
The mummy remained on-loan to de Young's Golden Gate Museum until 1910 when Donald O. Boudeman, a Kalamazoo businessman acquired her from a collector in San Francisco. The mummy was on display in the Bondeman home until 1928 when she was donated to the year old museum and library.
In 1920 Donald Boudeman with the help of a local surgeon unwrapped the mummy's head to see its facial features.
Modern Xray examination has disclosed that the mummy is of a woman. Examination of the pelvic area indicates that she had given birth. Her teeth were in very bad condition, probably resulting from a high amount of grit in her food. Her arms were crossed over her chest.
The stylistic elements of her coffin place her at Akhmim (The ancient Greek Panopolis) in the early centuries B.C.E.
