New Book On Barnes Aims To Dispel Myths

HouseBarnes.jpg

After years of controversy about its move from Merion, and just months after the Barnes Foundation has settled into its new home in Philadelphia, a new book by former Harvard University President and current Barnes board member, Neil Rudenstein has been published,  titled: The House of Barnes:  The Man, the Collection and the Controversy.

The book grew out of research Rudenstein did to inform his decision about whether he was prepared to join the newly expanded Barnes board prior to the move.  

Jim Cotter spoke with Neil Rudenstein at the author's Princeton home.
