The High Desert Museum in Bend, Oregon, has a replica of Doris Bounds’ Peace Pipe Museum in Hermiston, Oregon. This museum exhibited her collection from 1962 to 1968. When some of the artifacts suffered serious damage from water leaks and overheating, she closed the museum and transferred most of the collection to the vault in her bank (she was a banker). In 1990, she donated part of her collection to the High Desert Museum.
According to the Museum display:
“Doris Swayze Bounds was a Hermiston, Oregon, banker with a tremendous passion for American Indian culture. Out of childhood friendships with Indians she developed a life-long interest in native history and life. As an adult, she collected thousands of Indian artifacts, photographs, and other materials in the hope they would someday be used to educate the world about Native Americans.”
