Honoring the Boones: The Boone Collection consists of over 3,500 East Asian artifacts gathered by Commander Gilbert E. Boone and his wife, Katharine Phelps Boone ’30. The Boones acquired most of these objects in the late 1950s, during a three-year tour of duty in Japan.
 
In addition to the generous donation of the artifacts to The Field Museum, the Boone family also established a fund at Monmouth College to finance student internships each year: the Boone Scholars Internships for East Asian Studies.

Monmouth College has complimentary reserved parking in the East Museum Lot directly adjacent to the museum.
