George C. Vaillant Book Fund

George C. Vaillant Fund Bookplate

Established in 1946 by his wife, this generous gift supports the acquisition of materials for Penn's Museum Library.

George C. Vaillant was Director of the University Museum from 1941 to 1945. His publications on Mesoamerica from The chronological significance of Maya ceramics, 1927, to Aztecs of Mexico; origin, rise and fall of the Aztec nation, 1944, are in the Mesoamerican collection at the Penn Libraries that has been so enriched by the many acquisitions made possible by this endowment.
