From the Collection: This collection spans 148 years and two continents and does have some World War II era Nazi and Netherlands documents. However, it mostly centers on Aalbert Heine after he moved to Corpus Christi in 1957 to become the Corpus Christi Junior Museum Director. While it contains an eclectic amount of his background work in promoting the museum and learning, Heine traveled frequently and kept detailed travelogues often with details and sketches of other museums he visited and how what he saw could be incorporated to improve the Corpus Christi Museum. Heine and the Corpus Christi Science and History Museum are nearly inseparable from each other as he used his personality and philosophies to build the institution from the ground up.
