Hartman Gallery

The Hartman Gallery

John was born October 1, 1940 and the only child of Dwight and Helen Hartman. Dwight was a road engineer with the Pratt County Highway Dept. and Helen was an English teacher. Jon’s mother would read a lot of stories to him and that is where his interest and love for the Indian people bean. Jon started to collect when he was just 8 years old. He was a paper boy and with the money he earned he bought moccasins and the other Indian artifacts. He also discovered Indian artifacts along the Ninnescah River near Pratt.
