Boston Museum of Fine Arts


Boston Museum of Fine Arts
   Founded in 1872, the museum immediately acquired its first Egyptian objects from the collection of C. Granville Way, who had purchased them from the estate of Robert Hay, an early traveler in Egypt. Further acquisitions were made from the collection of John Lowell of Boston, another early traveler, and from donations from the Egypt Exploration Fund. In 1909, a new museum building was inaugurated. Following the appointment of George Reisner as curator of Egyptian antiquities in 1910, the museum received substantial numbers of objects from his archaeological work at Giza, Naga el-Deir, Deirel-Bersha, and various Nubian sites.
