While on a 3 hour marathon phone call at 12:30am this evening with your Museum’s vice chairman, James Lowman, I received a call on my other line from one of our Wentworth brothers. I joined the call into my conversation with Mr. Lowman, and moments later, the Museum was the recipient of a donation in the amount of $18,800. The donor asked that his name not be disclosed at this time, but rather, communicated simply: “just trying to do my part. I miss my home.” This donation is basically the equivalent of one half of the purchase price of the neighboring building we recently decided to acquire.

Donations large and small that echo this sentiment are always an honor to receive and always welcome.
