BACKGROUND:
The George Washington University Museum has been part of the 2007 campus plan. In February, the university announced that Albert H. Small would donate his unparalleled collection on the history of Washington, D.C., to GW. Mr. Small’s Washingtoniana Collection will be permanently displayed in the 156-year-old Woodhull House and in a to-be-constructed adjacent museum on the George Washington University Foggy Bottom campus. The museum will include galleries and space for academic and scholarly activity. An additional $5 million gift from Mr. Small will support the renovation of the Woodhull House and construction of the new museum.
