College Historian Earl H. Smith tracks the growth of the museum, focusing more on people than on the art they helped collect. The names are familiar: Lunder, Cummings, Abbott, Katz, Schupf, Strider and Cotter, among others. Smith reveals their roles in the museum's evolution from the early years, when a collection of primitive portraits hung in Foss dining hall, to the present, when the gift of the Lunder Collection made national news. Supporters of the museum have created "a most remarkable masterpiece indeed."
