In December of 1969, Maryville College received a gift from the May Department Stores and its St. Louis store, Famous-Barr Company. Maryville was among 94 colleges and museums across the country, including Webster College and St. Louis University in Missouri, to receive Far Eastern, Indian and Mediterranean ancient art. The art was part of a collection owned by Morton D. May, president of the May Department stores. Mr. May had previously donated a portion of his collection to the St. Louis Art Museum, and was considered one of the greatest collectors of so-called primitive art in the United States.
