This site is an online version of an exhibition showing at the National Museum of American History between February and August, 1999.
The Feather Trade and the American Conservation Movement is a collective effort by staff of the National Museum of American History and the Smithsonian Institution. Historical exhibitions are complex undertakings, and the history they present is an interpretation of historical evidence informed by knowledge and experience.
