[Excerpt from Introduction] Our initial knowledge of Charles H. Woodbury was that he had earned both a mechanical engineering degree from MIT and a place in the distinguished company of MIT alumni who had eschewed a technically-oriented career to pursue the arts. But preliminary research soon revealed that unlike Daniel Chester French, John Taylor Arms, Edwin Blashfield, Samuel V. Chamberlain, and Louis Rosenberg, Charles Woodbury-recognized and revered around the world as one ofAmerica's major artists from 1895 until after his death in 1940-had fallen into obscurity. We wish to recognize those who have helped us reacquaint the public with this great American artist. First among them is the late Gustav Klimann, a great friend and benefactor of the MIT Museum in its formative years. As we built the Museum's collections during the 1970s we found that a considerable number of Woodbury's works had been given to the Institute by the artist, his family, and friends. Klimann was very familiar with Woodbury's work, led us to appreciate its significance, and donated his services to restore two of MIT s Woodbury paintings that were in danger of being lost. During this period the idea of an exhibit of Woodbury's work was formed. We had enough paintings to do a small exhibition of just the works owned by MIT-although a number needed restoring and reframing.
