Coleman, Laurence Vail
Office of Education, United States Department of the Interior
The years 1929 and 1930 were years of active growth among museums. New institutions were founded. New buildings were erected and many existing ones were enlarged. Educational work was extended and improved. The ranks of the profession were strengthened. Museum work was accorded greater recognition and gained significantly in value and effectiveness. Museums are grouped here into to main classes: (1) Public museums, and (2) university, college, and school museums. Public museums--existing under a variety of controls and supports--direct their attention to the people at large. University, college, and school museums--controlled and supported by their parent institutions--exist for the instruction of particular student bodies. This bulletin on the topic of recent progress and condition of museums contains the following sections: (1) Statistics of public museums; (2) Statistics of university, college, and school museums; (3) The number of museums; and (4) Trends in museum work. (Contains 31 tables and 5 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
