Remarks:
The horsehair coats are three-quarter length with sleeve cuffs, pockets, buttons, and machine-stitched inner linings. The longer and darker of the two coats belonged to George Manville; the shorter and redder one was used by his wife, Lorena Manville. According to the donors, the hides used to make the coats came from horses on the Manville's ranch west of North Park, Colorado; the skins were shipped to Ede's Robe and Tanning Company in Iowa to be made into coats.
