The Museum in America

The Museum in America captures the life stories of thirteen visionary museum leaders who helped transform the 19th century's collection of curios into today's institution of public service and education. In the lively style of Museum Masters, Alexander recounts the stories of pioneers in American history, science, art, and general museums. For anyone interested in the history of the museum, this volume is the place to start.
