New York Times: Think Big, Build Small: Inventors' Prototypes
The New York Times' Antiques Column featured the Rothschild Patent Model Collection in its "Think Big, Build Small: Inventors’ Prototypes" article of December 8th:
Mr. Rothschild gives tours of his private patent-model museum by appointment at his home in Cazenovia, N.Y. Shelves and cases there are overflowing. In the garage boxfuls of more contraptions have not been unpacked yet. A decade ago he had developed plans for a free-standing museum building, but financing fell through, so he has been arranging traveling shows instead.
The article features both current exhibitions, at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington and the Hudson River Museum in Yonkers, New York.
