FORD LIBRARY The James B. Ford Library of the Museum was consolidated with the Huntington Free Library and Reading Room, in April, 1930. The Huntington Free Library and Reading Room was founded in 1892 by the late Collis P. Huntington in the old village of Westchester. Under the terms of agreement with Mr. Archer M. Huntington, this library, which has been liberally endowed by him as a memorial to his father, now includes in its collections the original library of the Huntington Free Library and Reading Room, a depository collection from the American Numismatic Society, and the library of the Museum of the American Indian, Heye Foundation. The library thus amalgamated contains between 25,000 and 30,000 volumes, some 6,000 belonging to the original library, 17,000 to the Museum of the American Indian, Heye Foundation, and 2,000 to the American Numismatic Society. An endowment for administrative expenses, for the purchase of books, their binding, and cataloguing is provided in this new plan. A modern fireproof stack building, with a capacity of 100,000 volumes, was erected for the housing of the combined libraries at 5 Westchester Square, [[end page]]
