Captured Motion: Skeletal Studies by S. Harmsted Chubb featured the major works from Chubb's four-decade career at the Museum (1, p. 1). It was curated by Marie Lawrence, scientific assistant in the Department of Mammalogy, under the supervision of curator Guy Musser. Lawrence researched and wrote scripts, found and selected cataloged photographs from the Museum Library's collection, and obtained video tapes from research and commercial sources. She collaborated with George Gardner of the Museum's Department of Exhibition and Graphics and representatives from Applebaum and Associates to design the exhibition (2, p. 29).
Samuel Harmsted Chubb (1863-1949), served as osteologist and associate curator in the Museum's Department of Comparative Anatomy and was an expert on the articulation and movement of bones. All his major works, which were mounted between 1903 and 1949, were featured in the exhibition, and they included (1; 3):
*Sysonby (race horse)
*Lee Axworthy (race horse)
*A draft horse pulling a heavy load
*A wolf pursuing a wild horse
*A donkey scratching its hind legs
*A rearing horse juxtaposed with a human (used as the official Museum logo at the time)
The exhibition also featured photographs by Eadweard Muybridge, on whose photographic studies Chubb built his work (3).
