Burrage's Remarkable Donation
Burrage’s relationship with the museum grew, and his
mineral collection was bequeathed to the museum. Among the mineral donated was
the impressive George de la Bouglise gold collection and a significant Bisbee,
Arizona azurite and malachite collection. This fine specimen of crystallized gold was Bouglise #368, purchased by Burrage and bequeathed to the MGMH.
