40 AMERICA’S COLLEGE MUSEUMS Three campuses of the University of California have museums of entomology—Berkeley, Davis, and Riverside. 5 million specimens, and the UCR Entomological Research Museum at Riverside has a collection of approximately 3 million both insects and related non-insectan arthropods on display. Other museums with large collections include the Frost Entomological Museum, Pennsylvania State University, more than 2 million; M. T. 28 million; Mississippi Entomological Museum, Mississippi State University, over 1 million; and Louisiana State Arthropod Museum, Louisiana State University, nearly 1 million.

The Museum of American Art is still at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, but its name now is the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts Museum. Among the other early efforts were the Trumbull Gallery (which later developed into the Yale University Art Gallery), established in 1832 at Yale University; a collection of engravings used to illustrate classical antiquity lectures in 1855 that eventually led to the establishment of the Museums of Art and Sculpture 31 University of Michigan Museum of Art in 1946; and the inclusion of an art museum (now known as the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center) for display of a teaching collection as part of the founding of Vassar College in 1861.
