Backstory and Context
The Museum began in the late 1920s as a class project and grew throughout the 1930s and 1940s, when librarians staffed the museum and provided tours to visitors. In August 1961, the family of Congressman B Carroll Reece donated their personal library to the museum, as well as funds to help establish a professional museum with full-time staff.
