Listen to Robert Sullivan writing only a few months ago.

"Almost all the great natural history museums emerged under the lengthening shadow of the Victorian paradigm of ascending progress. At the top of that ascending spiral was rational-logical, scientific, technological Western man. With quasi-religious fervour and divine sanctions, natural scientists roamed the world collecting, categorising, and classifying creation and sending it back to .. institutions that groaned under the load of nature's hold. Largely scholarly and scientific .. these first natural history museums presented a fragmented, "ologized", and exotic natural and cultural world, normally hanging or mounted or stuffed with Darwin's evolutionary theory.... In an increasingly urbanised, pre-television, pre-automobile, pre-jetliner world, natural history museums were the primary places to tangibly contact nature: the exotic, the bizarre, the primitive, the curiosities of the world that lay beyond the city limits."�

The Boxer-Chafee Amendment was adopted by a very narrow vote, 52-48, and two weeks later the photographer got a chilling call from Smithsonian curator Robert Sullivan telling him that there was pressure to cancel the show.
