Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Photographs and slides taken by Phila and George Caldwell on a Los Angeles Natural History Museum collecting expedition to Kenya in 1971, and on a Society Expedition cruise to the Antarctic in 1987.
Phila and George Caldwell were well-known philanthropists who supported cultural, educational, and family-support institutions in Southern California. These world travelers were trustees of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles and sometimes accompanied Museum staff on collection expeditions. The Caldwells owned the Milbank House in Santa Monica, Calif., a remarkably well preserved Craftsman style home built in 1911 by Phila Caldwell's grandfather, Isaac Milbank. Through Mrs. Caldwell's initiative the house was designated a Santa Monica Landmark.
