Buck Skin Dress given back to the Culture Center Museum

Robert Medlyn and his daughter Beverly Medlyn, not too long ago came to the museum to give back a Buck Skin dress that was made for and given to Beverly when they lived in Bylas in the 1960s. Beverly was in her early teens when this was given to her.

Robert Medlyn’s father, Norman, and mother, Leona lived in San Carlos from 1936 to 1952. During this time Norman managed the EF Osborn Trading Post, and from 1953 to 1969, Norman managed the Bylas tribal store and the U.S. Post Office. The late Tennyson Victor worked with Mr. Medlyn. The Bylas store was in bankruptcy when Norman was sent from San Carlos to Bylas to get it out of bankruptcy.
