Wiltsie and Field Families Collection

The collection materials span more than 100 years of history (1852-1967) associated with the Rochester Athenaeum and Mechanics Institute and the Rochester Institute of Technology from these two families who have held long ties to the university and its predecessors. Of interest is the material pertaining to the Wiltsie Watercolor Prize, established by Charles H. Wiltsie, who served as a trustee for RAMI from 1892 until 1914. The award was given annually from 1892-1943.
