Editor: Robert L. Stahl
Abstract: THE MONHEGAN MUSEUM OF ART & HISTORY was founded in 1968 when automation of the Monhegan Light Station provided the opportunity to acquire the property and transform it into a venue to preserve and display the island's rich historical and cultural heritage. As Edward L. Deci, director of the museum for thirty-five years, writes: 'Remarkably, on this small, isolated island the human history has been extraordinary.' The museum now houses a collection of more than 30,000 objects, including nearly 1,500 works of art, many created by some of the giants of American art who have been associated with the 160 year history of the Monhegan art colony
