Additional Information

From the Karleen Home Rosaaen plaque:

"The four Navajo rugs hanging in the area were a gift to the University of North Dakota Foundation in 1988 by alumna Karleen Home Rosaaen, '27. Raised in Bowman, N.D., Rosaaen had a distinguished career as a teacher and a Girl Scout professional. Her work with the Girl Scouts took her to summer camps throughout the country. Rosaaen's fascination with Navajo rugs as a child led to her collecting the as an adult. The four rugs donated to UND were woven at the turn of the century. Rosaaen received the Sioux Award, the UND Alumni Association's highest honor, in 1981. She now lives in Tucson, Arizona.
