History of ICOM

By Sid Ahmed Baghli, Patrick Boylan, Yani Herreman

Published on the occasion on the 18th General Conference in Melbourne the History of ICOM (1946-1996) was launched with great success.
A tribute to all those who have given their best to promote, defend and above all make museums popular places, this souvenir album recalls the eventful and fascinating journey during which the International Council of Museums has carried the torch for the museum profession the world over. From a small grain of sand ICOM has grown over fifty years of activity into a worldwide organisation with 15,000 members. Three eminent experts from different academic backgrounds and cultures give an analytical account of this extraordinary development.

History of ICOM (1946-1996) Sid Ahmed Baghli, Patrick Boylan, Yani Herreman Paris, ICOM, 1998. 102 p., bibl., index, photographs. ISBN 92-9012-243-9
