Between 1921 and 1948, Paul Sachs taught a year-long graduate class at the Fogg Art Museum (now Harvard Art Museums) “that decisively shaped the development, character, and ethos of the American art museum.” Notable graduates include Alfred Barr, founder of MoMA The Museum of Modern Art; Perry Rathbone, a formative director of Saint Louis Art Museum and Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; and George Stout, a key member of the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives program (aka the Monuments Men).
