THE PENNSYLVANIA MUSEUM 



SCHOOL OF INDUSTRIAL ART. 



THE FIFTEENTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES. 



This report is for the year ending December 31st, 1890. 

A review of the twelve months shows that while substantial progress 
has been made, the Institution has not been able to meet all the de- 
mands for the extension of its usefulness because of lack of funds. 
Nevertheless, in some respects its financial position is better than ever 
before. The floating debt has been cancelled. 

A bequest of $20,000 from Geo. S. Pepper, Esq., who generously 
remembered so many Philadelphia institutions in his will, has been 
received from his executors. The terms of the bequest are that the 
income only shall be used for the purposes of the Institution. The 
principal sum, therefore, has been added to the Endowment Fund. 

The Associate Committee of Women, still as untiring as in the past, 
have this year sent to the Treasurer 54,500, "the interest to be used 
for the use of the School as it now stands, or for a nucleus for a new 
building which will be able to accommodate the present pupils and 
those likely to come." Large as this sum is, it represents but a por- 
tion of the benefits the Institution is receiving from the interest and 
co-operation of these ladies in its work. 

As both of these sums have been received since the first of June 
last, they do not appear in the Treasurer's report. His report shows 
in detail the receipts and expenditures and investment account from 
June 1st, 1889, to May 31st, 1890. Here we shall simply direct at- 
tention to certain general considerations suggested by it. The cost of 
maintaining the Museum and School was $10,763.77 for the Museum, 
and $17,323.72 for the School, making a total of $28,087.49. To 
meet this expenditure we had the income from the Endowment Fund, 

(5) 



$3,852; membership dues, $950; tuition fees, $4,599; appropriation 
by the Legislature of $10,000, applied to the School; wages of the 
employees at Memorial Hall (the Museum), repaid by the Commission- 
ers of Fairmount Park out of the appropriation by Councils, $7,695.36, 
making a total of $27,096.36. The cost of heating and otherwise 
maintaining and repairing Memorial Hall, provided for by the dis- 
appropriation to the Park Commissioners, does not pass through our 
account, as it is paid for directly by the Commissioners. 

The fact which is of most concern in the above statement is the 
small amount of income which the Institution can consider as its own, 
as against the total expenditure, showing how dependent we are on the 
appropriations to maintain the Institution on its present basis of use- 
fulness. While we may, perhaps, count with reasonable certainty upon 
the continuance of these appropriations, such continuance is by no 
means absolutely sure, and in the meantime we should strive to make 
the Institution independent of these contingencies. The withdiawal 
of one or the other appropriation at the present time would compel 
the closing of the Museum or a portion of the School. 

Under the terms of the Temple Trust three-fifths of the income are 
to be expended for the purchase of objects for the Museum. Out of 
this fund there has been purchased this year a plaster cast of the fa- 
mous Pulpit by Niccola Pisano in the Cathedral at Siena. Workmen 
are now putting the cast in place in the Rotunda at Memorial Hall. 
It is proposed to make purchases from time to time of other casts of a 
like nature, and to devote this portion of the Hall to their display. 

The popularity of the Museum is indicated by the number of its 
visitors. There were upwards of 312,000 visited it last year. As in 
each previous year, more than half the total were Sunday visitors. In 
other words, the number of visitors on a Sunday is greater than the sum 
of all the visitors on the six week days. Granting that a large propor- 
tion of this multitude are mere pleasure seekers, the admission carries 
with it a strong argument for the maintenance of the Museum. With 
intelligence quickened, with interest awakened by the sight of the objects 
on view, many of these pleasure seekers become knowledge seekers. 
Few persons besides those who have made a study of educational 
methods, realize what "a persuasive lure" to study a public museum 
can be made. In this view the support of the Museum should com- 
mend itself to all who are interested in the advancement of education. 

Notwithstanding the crowded condition of the School referred to

in last year's report, room lias been made at considerable inconveni- 
ence to teachers and pupils for some fifty more scholars. It is, there- 
fore imperative that better accommodation be provided at the earliest 
possible moment. We have reached the limit of our usefulness with 
the means at our command. How to do this becomes simply a ques- 
tion of the generous philanthropy of a few wealth) people, or a gen- 
eral subscription measuring the public interest in an educational work. 

The proposal of the University ^i~ Pennsylvania to sell the Institu- 
tion a site for a building in the University grounds, which was referred 
to this board for action at the last annual meeting, was carefully con 
sidered and declined on the ground that the Board did not see its way 
clear at the time to accept the proposal. No other place has since 
been suggested. 

Correspondence has been had with a committee of the U. S. Pot- 
ters' Association relative to a proposal from them for the establishment 
of a Ceramic Department of the School, to be conducted in much the 
same manner as the Textile Department is conducted. The questions 
involved are still under consideration. 

The record of this year is clouded by one sad event — the death of 
Mr. Frederic Graff, one of our Vice-Presidents, and for a number of 
years Chairman of the Executive Committee. Mr. Graff was one of 
our most active members, a man of conservative mind and sound 
judgment, a wise counsellor and friend. 

Two vacancies in the Trustees elected by the Corporation — one 
caused by the death of Mr. Graff, the other by the appointment of Mr. 
S. G. Thompson as the representative of the Commissioners of Fair- 
mount Park — were filled temporarily by the election of Mr. Chas. E. 
Dana and Mr. T. P. Chandler, Jr. The only change in the officers was 
the election of Mr. Stuart Wood as Treasurer in the place of Mr. J. 
H. Dingee. who declined re-election. 

Following are the reports of the Curator of the Museum and the 
Principal of the School. 

THE MUSEUM. 

The average yearly increase in the number of visitors to the Museum 
since it was opened free to the public, nine years ago, is about twenty 
thousand. This year 312,322 persons visited the Museum. Of this 
number 171. 135 were Sunday visitors. The largest attendance on any 



one day was on July 4th, when 14,036 persons were admitted to th,e 
building. 

The large marble altar, a beautiful example of modern Italian art 
workmanship, which was loaned by its owner for exhibition at the 
Centennial, and after that event was left in the custody of the Museum 
until its final location should be determined, was removed during the 
year to St. Mary's church in West Philadelphia. 

Within a few weeks a plaster cast of the pulpit by Niccola Pisano in 
the Cathedral of Siena, has been received from abroad and its erection 
in the Rotunda begun. 

It is proposed to devote this portion of the Hall to the display of 
architectural casts; an arrangement which will accord well with the 
plan of the building. 

Last spring permission was given the Fairmount Park Art Association 
to exhibit temporarily in the Rotunda the original plaster model of 
Wolf's "Lion-Fighter." The group was brought here and put in 
place, and has attracted much notice. 

Gifts of objects were made by — 

Dr. E. S. Vanderslice :

Commissioners of Fairmount Park, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. 

Dalton Dorr, Curator. 




THE SCHOOL. 



The growth of the School, as noted in former reports, has continued 
during the year, not only without interruption, but with such rapidity 
that the limit of our accommodations was reached some time ago, so 
that a considerable number of applicants have had to be refused ad- 
mission and all enlargement of the facilities has been effectually stopped 
for want of room. 

This is encouraging in one way, of course, as showing that the work 
of the School is receiving the kind of recognition and appreciation 
which is most to be valued, but it is very much to be regretted that the 
accommodations and equipment are on so limited a scale as to make 
further advance impossible until some radical change is made in the 
matter of buildings. 

The most important change that has been made in organization has 
been the incorporation of the work in carving with the course in mod- 
elling as part of the regular requirements of this course, instead of 
being regarded as a special course by itself. Special students of carv- 
ing are still received, but the best and most important work of the 
class is that which forms part of the modelling course and which is 
now required of all pupils in this course. 

The change is a salutary and important one, and is quite in line 
with the efforts which have been made all along toward giving as far 
as possible a practical industrial turn to the work of the School in 
every department. 

The class is now in charge of Mr. A. C. Simons, who was the assist- 
ant teacher last vear. 



IO 

The Department of Chemistry and Dyeing has been placed in 
charge of Mr. Edward Gudeman, Ph. B., in place of Mr. R. L. Chase, 
who resigned in October last. Mr. Paul Lachenmeyer, Miss Helen A. 
Fox, and Mr. Vernon H. Bailey have been appointed assistants in the 
Drawing Classes. 

Gifts of materials and loom fixtures have been made by the follow- 
ing to the Textile Department: Mr. Wm. Weeden. R. Sergeson & 
Co., and Mr. Albert Coupe. 

Fifty-four volumes and ten engravings were added to the School 
Library during the year, of which forty were purchased, thirteen by 
the School and twenty-seven from funds derived from other sources. 

Ten engravings from Raphael's ' ' Decorations of the Vatican Loggie ' ' 
were given by Mr. John Moss, Jr., and fourteen volumes were given 
by Mr. Richard Cadbury, Mrs. Little, Mrs. Wm. E. Hulme, Mr. S. 
R. koehler, C. H. Banes, E. H. Coates, E. A. Posselt, J. M. Wilson. 
State Library University of New York, Metropolitan Museum of Art, 
and Boston Museum of Art. This makes a total of three hundred 
and sixty-two volumes now in the Library, besides the engravings 
noted above. 

A prize of $10.00, which was offered by Mrs. W. Hinckle Smith, 
of the Associate Committee of Women, for a design for a programme 
to be used at the ball given at the Academy of Music on the evening 
of December nth, 1890, was awarded to Miss Mary L. Price. 

The usual closing exercises were held in Memorial Hall, May 31st, 
1890. Addresses were made by the President, Mr. Frank Miles Day, 
Mr. D. F. Haynes, Mr. G. H. Davis, Mrs. E. D. Gillespie, and Mr. 
Frank B. Bennett. 

An exhibition of students' work was made at the same time and 
place, which remained open during the summer. 

Four appointments to the State Scholarships have been made by the 
Governor during the year, viz.: For Centre, Chester, Cumberland, and 
Clearfield Counties. Eleven holders of these appointments are at 
present registered in the School. 

The scholarships placed at the disposal of the Board of Education 
of the city were filled, as usual, by a competitive examination con- 
ducted by the Principal, each grammar-school principal being author- 
ized to send candidates. It is gratifying to note that this method of 
making appointments, which was adopted in 1887, is producing excel- 
lent results ; the class of students admitted being better qualified each 



J I 

vear. and a considerable increase of interest, on the part of public 
school teachers and pupils alike, having already resulted from this 
arrangement. 

The following certificates and prizes were awarded at the closing

ANNUAL REPORT 



ASSOCIATE COMMITTEE OF WOMEN 



The work of this Committee has never been undertaken with more 
zeal, nor carried forward to greater success than during the year 1890. 

Interest in both Museum and School is aroused and the public awak- 
ened to the fact that in the institution is found, as ex-Governor Beaver 
expresses it, "one of the great educational agencies of our goodly 
Commonwealth. ' ' 

Our citizens are learning that if the purity of our government is to 
be preserved, it will be owing largely to the education of our youth, 
girls as well as boys, and that the best protection for our manufactur- 
ers will come from the training of the young according to the talents 
which God has given them. 

Thus may we honestly compete with workers in foreign countries 
where education is compulsory. This, in a small degree, we have al- 
ready accomplished. Many of our pupils are now filling positions 
heretofore held by foreigners. Our graduates are scattered over this 
broad land as teachers and designers; some appointed to places after 
competitive examination with pupils of other schools, and nothing but 
praise of their capability to fill the positions to which they have been 
called comes to us from their employers. 

But we cannot stop here ; out tree must put forth new branches. 
Engravers, potters, architects, etc., are asking to be engrafted with us. 
There are no limits to the "School of Industrial Art," and there will 
be none if from our State and our citizens the means can speedily 
be found to enlarge the capacity of our now overcrowded School 
Building. ^ 

If this can be done, those who live after us will bless the Exhibition 
of 1876, which gave birth to the Institution whose claims are now but 



17 

imperfectly set before the intelligent public of the State of Pennsyl- 
vania. 

During last season a public reception was tendered by the Trustees 
and their associates to Mrs. Bloomfield-Moore, whose generous con- 
tributions to the Museum have greatly added to its interest. Ill health 
prevented Mrs. Moore from accepting the invitation. 

The annual report of the Treasurer of the Associate Committee is 
appended hereto. 

By order of the Committee. 

MATILDA H. SHELTON, 

Jan. 2d, 1 89 1. Secretary.
