This issue of the journal features a note from the editor, two articles, four book reviews, and supplemental material. In “Silent Legacy: The Story of Vasily Konovalenko’s Gem-Carving Sculptures,” Stephen E. Nash and Frances Alley Kruger examine Russian artist the life and work of Vasily Konovalenko (1929-1989), as well as the unusual circumstances that led to the two exhibitions, their role in Konovalenko’s relative obscurity, and a recent resurgence of interest.
In “Exploring the Concept of a ‘Legacy’ Collection: A Study on German WWI Paper Textiles at the National Museum of American History,” Kathleen King questions the value of keeping objects that no longer support the current mission statement of a museum by using a collection of surplus German military objects composed of woven paper from the First World War in the Smithsonian National Museum of American History as a case study.

Hannah Marsh reviews House of Lost Worlds: Dinosaurs, Dynasties, & the Story of Life on Earth, by Richard Conniff. Margot Note reviews Museums, Ethics and Cultural Heritage, edited by Bernice L. Murphy. Additional content includes listing and information about six additions to the Editorial Board of the journal and a call for papers.
