MARLIN BRANDO
owns thousands of indian artifacts from Kingston. Arthur Vantangoli, a one time selectman, harbor-master, and amateur archeologist was an avid collector of Native American baskets, arrow heads, and other artifacts. I recall Friday night poker games in the basement of his home were a bit like playing cards in a museum. His collection consisted of thousands of items and its fame spread far and wide. One day it came to the attention of Hollywood screen icon, Marlin Brando. Brando made Arthur an offer he couldn’t refuse and Arthur sold his collection — lock, stock, and basket.
