    Article metrics


    THE museum founded to commemorate the World's Columbian Exposition at Chicago has reached a stage which enables it to commence a series of publications designed to present to the world the results of research conducted under its auspices. The first of this series is before us, and is devoted to an historical account of the movement that resulted in the establishment of the museum. From this description we extract the following sketch of the early history of the museum, and of the general character of the contents.
