A video lecture by Thomas S. Buechner, as presented to the docents of the Corning Museum of Glass.
Speakers, Marie McKee ; Thomas S. Buechner.

Preceding the lecture by Thomas Buechner, Marie McKee remarks about the importance of docents and how they represent the museum. Mr. Buechner begins his lecture on the history of the Corning Museum of Glass by explaining his association with the Corning Museum of Glass as director from 1950-1960, and again from 1977-1982. With the use of a slide show, he moves from the building of the original Glass Center (completed in 1950) to the completed Gunnar Birkerts building (completed in 1980). He further explains how acquisitions for the museum were first made, and how the collection has grown throughout the years. Other museum directors, Paul Perrot, Robert H. Brill, and Dwight Lanmon were also acknowledged in this lecture.
