Pierpont Morgan and first director of the Morgan; Felice Stampfle (1913–2000), first curator of the collection of Drawings and Prints; and Edith Porada (1912–1994), honorary curator of Ancient Mesopotamian Seals and Tablets, we will explore the lasting mark that women have made at the Morgan through their leadership, scholarship, and acquisitions.
