Summary:
An inspection of the museum world and the place of anthropology within it provides an historical perspective taking into consideration museum personnel as well as the housing of collections. The chronological emergence and development of museums will be discussed. Museums as an early training ground for curators and educators in anthropology will be mentioned. Tracking through time will include a description of curatorial tasks of some of the more famous early curators, and their incipient roles both in the maintenance, presentation and conservation of museum collections and in museum education. A consideration of the world of museology will provide in addition an updated look at the workings of present-day museum personnel and their techniques, in particular as related to anthropology. Different but related questionnaires were sent to Museum Administrators and Museum Educators, respectively, at museums around the country. Results of the data-gathering and recommendations for improvements in museum education policies will be included in the third and fourth chapters.
