In their article , the authors stated the following:
“One of the laboratory’s first major projects in the 1970s resulted in the Saltzman Collection of Peruvian dyes, a notebook containing recipes and descriptions of materials collected and prepared by Saltzman. The notebook, currently held in the collections at UCLA, also contains skeins of wool (not specified, but presumably from domestic sheep), alpaca and cotton yarns, prepared by either Dr. Saltzman himself or more likely one of his associates [emphasis added].”
The authors would like to correct their article to give appropriate credit to the associate of Dr. Saltzman, Kay Antúnez de Mayolo, who worked as a field assistant under a grant from the Smithsonian Institution to the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics at the University of California Los Angeles in the 1970s. She and her husband Erik traveled throughout Peru collecting botanical specimens and preparing dyes as described in her report . Mr. Max Saltzman—not Dr. Saltzman, as we had presumed incorrectly—was the project administrator of that grant and received from Ms. Antúnez de Mayolo the original collection of dye samples and report that were sent to UCLA at the termination of the field work. The authors would therefore like to correct the above text to the following:
“One of the laboratory’s first major projects in the 1970s resulted in a collection of Peruvian dyes, part of which consisted of a notebook containing recipes and descriptions of materials collected and prepared by Kay Antúnez de Mayolo, a botanist who was working as a field assistant for Mr. Saltzman [3, 4]. The notebook, currently held in the collections at UCLA, also contains skeins of wool, alpaca and cotton yarns, prepared by Ms. Antúnez de Mayolo during the field work in May to September 1977.”
Where the authors have referred to the collection and preparation of the samples elsewhere in the article, this should additionally be credited to Ms. Antúnez de Mayolo.
The authors are grateful to Ms. Antúnez de Mayolo for alerting them to this oversight and for providing a copy of the unpublished report to Dr. Armitage.
