Title Boys from the Brooklyn Museum venture to Zion
Date 2008
Description The Brooklyn Museum is the second largest museum in New York City, and one of the largest in the United States. Although now known primarily as an art museum, prior to the Second World War, the Museum pursued an aggressive acquisition policy in the field of Natural History and Archeology. Various members of the curatorial staff made expeditions to southern Utah to study plant and animal life. This paper will center on the work of George P. Engelhard, a Curator and Entomologist at the Museum, who made 4 trips to Utah and collected a wealth of materials for the Brooklyn Museum. While other museum's expeditions to Utah are well documented, little has been written about the expeditions conducted by the Brooklyn Museum.
