and decorative arts. Please check with the museum's registrar, Charles

>For courses in American material culture/archeology, it would be helpful to
have images of artifacts such as furniture, textiles, toys, and the like.
For example, the Index of American Design or similar images. For my
purposes, late 19th and 20-century materials would be especially desireable,
but others may have other needs. Non-anglo works are important, too!
