The June 1978 issue The Magazine Antiques was entirely devoted to the Winterthur Museum. Renowned editor Wendell Garrett offered some stimulating thoughts about American museums in general, and Winterthur in particular. John Sweeney of the Winterthur Museum provided many details about Henry Francis du Pont whose vision, nearly 40 years later, continues to be realized and enhanced today at the site of this symposium.
The January 2002 issue of The Magazine Antiques celebrated the 50-year Golden Anniversary of the Winterthur Museum. Many articles and essays describe the past, present and likely future of this American public treasure.
