Billings man donates decades of Crow research and artifacts to Little Big Horn College
. . . After more than a half century of adding taped interviews, cabinets full of correspondence, 200 files on specific archaeological sites, hundreds of color photographic slides and books on history, archaeology and anthropology to weigh down [Stuart Conner's] office, Little Big Horn College library staff have been slowly hauling the collection to Crow Agency. . . .
“It’s a massive donation,” said Jon Ille, an archivist for the school’s library who has been sorting through the 40 linear feet of boxes. “I thought it was not going to take too long because he was really meticulous in how he processed things.” Ille has been working on the donation since June and hopes to have everything done by the end of the year.
