INSTITUTING REFORM: THE SOCIAL MUSEUM OF HARVARD UNIVERSITY, 1903-1931. Ed. by Deborah Martin Kao and Michelle Lamuniere. Harvard Art Museums, Cambridge, 2012. Distributed by Yale University Press, New Haven. 288 pp. with 245 ills. (18 col.). 32 x 25 cm. LC 2011-30033 ISBN 9780300171068 In English.
Evolving from a symposium titled "A New Social Order" that was held at Harvard Art Museums in 2007 in conjunction with the exhibition "Classified Documents: The Social Museum of Harvard University, 1903-1931," this scholarly volume carefully examines the history and photographic collections of Harvard's Social Museum, an institution established in 1903 by Francis Greenwood Peabody (1847-1936) to "collect the social experience of the world as material for university teaching," presenting hundreds of images from the vast archive of more than 5,000 documentary photographs and graphic illustrations that survive (including images by Lewis Hine and Frances Benjamin Johnston) along with five essays that examine the museum's collections, its motives in casting a light upon various social issues, and the role such institutions played in social-science research and education.
