EH.T: Museum of American Financial History
================= EH.TEACH POSTING ================= The M.A.F.H. is located in NYC. Their web site (www.mafh.org) states: "Welcome to the Museum of American Financial History, founded in 1988 as the nation's only museum dedicated to chronicling the role of finance and the capital markets in American history. The main objectives of the Museum are to collect and preserve historical financial artifacts, and to research, organize, and display them in ways which bring the nation's financial history alive - to students, policy makers, the media, and the general public. The museum's permanent collections include priceless antique stocks, bonds, and currency; historic documents and photographs; and equipment once used on Wall Street. Strongly committed to its role as an educational resource, the Museum has shaped its collections and exhibits to foster an understanding of the way the nation's capital markets have influenced and responded to significant national events. Its quarterly magazine Financial History and this web site have been designed as extensions of the museum, to bring this educational effort far beyond the gallery walls."
