Welcome to the Ingalls Library & Museum Archives!
A water leak was detected on August 8 in library stack B10, which houses parts of the book collection as well as the journal and auction catalogue collections. Consequently, stack B10 is closed until further notice. Paging is still available. The library will provide an update as repairs are made. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

Born January 3, 1934 in Dallas, TX, he earned his bachelor’s degree from Stanford University in 1955 and a Master’s degree from Harvard three years later. He received an additional Master’s degree from the University of Delaware after two years as a Winterthur Fellow (1958-1960). He spent his entire career at CMA, serving in positions of increasing responsibility for over 42 years.
