Many individuals contributed to the Museum as we know it today. This database shows collectors that are linked together by objects that have been passed between them. You can explore them by searching by name, career and by membership to various clubs.
On each individual's record, related collectors are displayed. These are collectors that an object is known to have been passed between. By navigating through this set of 4,500 collectors and 5,500 relationships you can research these historical relationships for yourself.
