Sample text

Its ultimate worth as a reference must be said to rest as much with them as with me, in the final analysis. DAVID C. HUNT Page 1 Guide to Oklahoma Museums Page 3 Introduction Derived from the Greek, the term museum originally referred to a temple dedicated to the ancient goddesses of philosophy and the arts known as the Muses. Our word music comes from the same source. The Greek democracies knew nothing of museums in the accepted modem sense, however, nor did Europe as a whole know anything of museums as public institutions before about the middle of the eighteenth century.

The vast and varied displays at Gilcrease, in particular, always had been a source of unending fascination for me, but it was only as an adult that I came at last to appreciate the significance of such collections or to realize that what I once had taken pretty much for granted at Woolaroc, Philbrook, and Gilcrease is an unusual legacy to Oklahomans from those whose pastimes and preoccupations brought together one of the largest regional inventories of Americana in the world. In 1965 I went to work for the Gilcrease Institute, where my professional interest in museum collections developed.

Evidences of that heritage and those accomplishments are everywhere to be seen, but especially in museum collections throughout the state. For those who would really get to know Oklahoma and its people, a visit to its museums is in order. They are open to everyone, and well worth experiencing.  (Photograph by Fred W.
