Description : Ford Scholar Jarrett Gregory '05 and Assistant Professor of Art Jacqueline Marie Musacchio have constructed a Website examining the history of Vassar's plaster cast collection, from its inception in 1866 to its almost complete dispersal and destruction in the first half of the 20th century. Part of the collection, which at one time featured over 200 pieces, is pictured here in an undated photograph of Taylor Hall.
