Postal Museum gets gift

September 23, 2009|Associated Press

The National Postal Museum has received an $8-million donation to build a new street-level gallery in Washington.

Officials said Tuesday that the gift from William H. Gross, founder of Pacific Investment Management Co., was the largest donation in the museum's history. Gross is also lending the museum some of the world's rarest stamps from his personal collection.

Director Allen Kane says the museum will be able to move from its somewhat hidden basement into a street-level space that's about 40% bigger.
