"The unparalleled collection of 1,400 wildfowl decoys at Shelburne
Museum in Shelburne, Vt., was established with a 1952 gift of more
than 400 superior examples from Joel Barber, a New York City
architect, artist, and carver. Barber's groundbreaking 1934 book
"Wild Fowl Decoys" was the first to identify the importance of bird
decoys as a uniquely American art form."
