"Alexandria, Gateway to the East" featured a diorama presenting a bird's-eye view of the city in A.D. 150. The small exhibition was a forerunner of numerous dioramas which were being constructed for the Hall of Peoples of Asia, which was under the direction of Walter A. Fairservis, Research Associate in the Department of Anthropology. The three-dimensional model, capturing the grandeur of ancient Alexandria, was on view in the Roosevelt Memorial Hall, on the second floor, of the American Museum of Natural History during the month of January 1974 as the Exhibit of the Month.
Individuals and institutions involved in the creation of the exhibition: Walter A. Fairservis, Jr., Research Associate, AMNH Department of Anthropology.
