The Gus Bogan Farm site, located 1 mile north of the city of Mineola, Texas, in the upper Sabine River basin, was recorded by University of Texas at Austin (UT) archaeologists in 1935 based on the photographic documentation of ancestral Caddo ceramic vessels and elbow pipe in the Gus T. Bogan, Sr. and Gus T. Bogan, Jr. collections from the site. The Bogan’s were digging a Caddo cemetery there, and loaned a portion of their recovered collections to the University Centennial Exposition for the duration of the exhibit. Analyses of the vessels and pipe in this article are based on the examination of Xerox copies of the photographs in the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory site files. Information on temper, surface treatment, firing conditions, etc., of the vessels and pipe was not obtained during the 1935 photographic documentation, however, or any description of decorative methods, motifs, or elements.
