The Odd S. Halseth Manuscript Collection contains typed documents recording the pueblo pottery collection of the San Diego Museum in 1924 June and an account of attending the Congress of Poets and the International Congress of Archaeology in Oslo in 1936 July and August.
Odd Sigurd Halseth, anthropologist and founder of the Pueblo Grande Museum, was born to Johannes and Marit (Kaasbo) Halseth in Moss, Norway on May 19, 1893. After pursuing childhood interests in archaeological excavations in Europe, Halseth spent his teenage years travelling and finally settled in the United States in 1916. He served overseas during World War I and later established his career working at the San Diego Museum and as Curator of Archaeology at the Museum of New Mexico at Santa Fe.
