Historical Note:
In 1903 Congress authorized the Board of Regents to begin a new museum building, construction to be under the direction of Bernard R.

Richard Rathbun, Assistant Secretary, spent much of his time from 1901 to 1911 planning and supervising construction of the new building, including extensive consultation with foreign and domestic museum experts.
