Dr. Isaiah Everhart’s School Photo, mid-late 1850s

The Founder’s Gallery showcases the life of Museum founder Dr. Isaiah F. Everhart (1840–1911), tracing his life from his beginnings in rural Southeastern Pennsylvania, through his career as a surgeon in the Civil War, to his settling in Scranton and establishment of the Museum that bears his name.

Dr. Everhart’s story is told in his own words taken from journal entries; through objects from the Museum’s collection, including the many taxidermy specimens he completed; and through rarely seen photos from the Museum’s archives.

This gallery is made possible through a generous gift from the Munley Family and Munley Law, in memory of Robert W. Munley.
