Herbert Brownell (Outside Counsel, 1960s-1980s)
Walter Burke (Trustee, 1980-1997; Trustee Emeritus, 1997-present)
James R. Houghton (Trustee, 1982-1998; Chairman of the Board of Trustees, 1998-present)

Edith A. Standen (Curator, 1949-1970; Curator Emeritus, 1993-1998)
In 1993 the Museum embarked on a program to create an oral history of the institution as seen through the eyes of those people who know it well and have helped to shape it. Transcripts of additional interviews in this series will be made available to qualified researchers over time, consistent with restrictions established by the interviewees and as the processing schedule of the Archives permits.
Please send requests for access, along with a brief summary of the research project, an outline of sources already consulted and a curriculum vitae or resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
