The formation of a museum collection is a process spanning time and space that involves the culturally embedded action and interaction of multiple parties. The resulting display both reflects and perpetrates ideologies that are consumed by its visitors. These ideas are explored through the examination of the history of the ethnographic collection at the Fleming Museum in Burlington, Vermont through analysis of the museum’s donors.
