This is a catalog of a memorial exhibition in honor of Edward Forbes, Director of the Fogg Art Museum at Harvard from 1909 to 1944; it focuses on three of the most important accomplishments of his professional career: his view of the university art museum, his contribution to the Cambridge landscape, and his pioneering conservation efforts; the catalog includes four sections: Art Museum Director, City Planner, Herald of Conservation, and Gifts and Bequests of Edward Waldo Forbes, with brief forewords by John Coolidge, Jose Luis Sert, George Leslie Stout, and Elizabeth Jones; also includes a general introduction by Agnes Mongan, a chronology of his life, and many illustrations (light blue cover with slight edgewear, small discolored spot on back from sticker removal, otherwise a good, clean, tight copy).
