Description : The Academy's third principal, Dr. Robert Porter Keep, a noted greek scholar, suggested the idea of creating a collection of plaster casts of some of the world's greatest sculptures for the new museum. On March 23, 1887, Edwin Robinson, then in charge of the classical collections for the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, accepted Dr. Keep's offer to select, purchase and install a collection of Egyptian, Near Eastern, Greek, Roman and Italian Renaissance casts in the museum. Robinson went on to become Director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and now, more than 100 years later, the Slater cast collection is one of the three largest remaining in the United States.
