Rediscovery of Museum Egyptian Scarab Collection
John Sarr is founding president of the Oregon chapter of the American Research Center in Egypt.
"Sarr rediscovered PAM’s collection when he moved to Portland in the 1990s and—realizing the collection’s significance from its history and content—set about to document the collection by creating a catalog of drawings of each item. This work led to the public display of approximately 100 scarabs during the Museum’s 1998 exhibition, Splendors of Ancient Egypt. Although PAM’s scarab collection is one of the oldest collections at the Museum—having been accessioned in 1929—and a significant collection in the Egyptological field, it has been little understood and documented over the years."
