Letter of Appreciation from Anna Singer (May 3, 1932)

On the occasion of the presentation of the Museum, Anna Brugh Singer writes of her thanks to those involved in the Museum and her hopes for its future. Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


In presenting today the museum and its contents to Hagerstown and Washington County I should like to express apart from my note of thanks to the Mayor and Council a few words of especial thanks and praise to the County Commissioners and their Chairman for the really wonderful thing they have done for the children throughout the County.

Their support and interest have made possible the chance of an artistic growth in the out-of-way places, and thus the development of a wider vision,-the awakening of the soul to the glory of God’s Created Nature and the beauty that lies about them neither seen nor felt before-Now, all who will may feast and learn. To those too far removed to come to the Museum the opportunity to see and learn shall be given them through the wonderful and perfectly conceived idea of Miss Titcomb and Mrs. Hamilton,–the “Traveling Museum”–a truly splendid achievement. My happiness in being a part of this developing work is beyond my power to express, as is also my appreciation of the helpful cooperation whole heartedly given by one and all towards the completion of this Institution so necessary for the greater spiritual growth of the Town and County.

That the Museum may fulfill its purpose, even beyond our fondest dreams and hopes, is the hearts desire of my husband and myself.

Anna B. Singer

Washington County Museum of Fine Arts

Anna Singer offers her appreciation to the many Hagerstonians who have contributed to the success of the Museum. Among the recipients of her thanks are Mavin J. Hamilton and Mary L. Titcomb who were members of the Museum committee. Much like Miss Titcomb's earlier idea of the bookmobile the "traveling museum" mentioned was a lending library of art reproductions, taken to schools and civic organizations located outside of downtown Hagerstown.
