Duke Energy Helps USCL
Expand Pottery Collection

Dr. John Catalano and Mr. Rick JiranDuke Energy recently presented USC Lancaster with a $25,000 check to purchase a unique group of ceramic pipes made by Catawba and other Native American traditional artists. 

A number of the pieces will be purchased from Philip Wingard of Clover, who will be also be donating the remaining pieces from his pipe collection. 

USCL’s pottery archive currently includes the Philip Wingard Catawba Indian pottery collection, which includes over seventy pieces of Catawba Indian pottery, some from the nineteenth century and earlier.  The acquisition of Mr. Wingard’s ceramic pipes will continue to enrich the USCL pottery holdings, which already constitute the largest single collection of Catawba Indian pottery in existence.

Duke Energy District Manager Rick Jiran stated, “Duke Energy is pleased to be able to provide funding to help expand the pottery collection at USCL and to help the campus reach its goal of being the premier site of Native American studies in the state.”
