These materials document several research projects and other interests of Dwight P. Lanmon, former director of the Corning Museum of Glass. These include his master's thesis, Glass in Baltimore: the Trade in Hollow and Tablewares, 1780-1820; the 1976 issue of the Journal of Glass Studies, focusing on glass produced at the Amelung Glass Manufactory; analysis of spurious blown three-mold glass in the so-called Mutzer group for an article in the 1973 issue of the Journal of Glass Studies; a catalog of the Melvin Billups Glass Collection at the New Orleans Museum of Art; and a guide to glass found at Colonial Williamsburg. Materials include research notes, reports, articles and copies from primary sources, as well as photographs, drawings and other images.
Dwight P. Lanmon, former the chief curator, curator of European glass, and director of the Corning Museum of Glass (CMoG), received a master's degree in early American culture in 1968, from the University of Delaware and the Henry Francis du Pont Winterthur Museum. He worked at the Winterhtur Museum before becoming chief curator and curator of European glass at CMoG in 1973, and then deputy director in 1981.
