1 Egyptian Mummy
from Northern Egypt
The Rutgers Geology Museum has an Egyptian mummy and other artifacts. The mummy was brought to the University a hundred years ago by a missionary when Rutgers was a school of the Dutch Reformed Church. Since the separation of the Church and the University the mummy has been on loan from the Theological Seminary in New Brunswick.
Records at the Theological Seminary are not readily available so this is currently all I know about this mummy.
Information regarding this mummy was kindly supplied to my by R. William Selden Collections Manager of the Museum.
