Reverend Douglas L. Rights

Douglas L. Rights (1891-1956) was a Moravian pastor. He was elected a bishop of the Southern Provice in 1956 but died before his consecration. Reverend Rights collected American Indian artifacts from locations near Winston-Salem and in the western piedmont section of North Carolina. His artifacts are now held in the collection of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the Museum of Anthropology at Wake Forest University. This photograph show Reverend Rights holding a “pottery effigy” of undetermined origin.
