Biographical / Historical
This collection of citation cards was begun by Kenneth M. Wilson when he worked at Sturbridge Village. Copies of the citation cards were brought with him when he came to The Corning Museum of Glass in 1963 to serve as a curator. Additional cards were added by Wilson and later by The Corning Museum of Glass associate curator for American glass, Jane Shadel Spillman, through the 1970s.
