Margaret MacLean is appointed guide to the collections. Though well-educated, she has to satisfy each Director that she is competent to guide people through his galleries and his approval must be sent in writing to Board.  She has the idea of holding story time for children an hour earlier than the lectures for adults on Saturday afternoons.

Illness forced her to stop, but she had made such a difference that she was immediately replaced and the role of public education was strengthened.
