This chapter discusses the many gifts and donations that Alexander gave to the museum. It shows that in 1913, Alexander had begun planning an endowment for the museum, due to the continuous growth of its collections and its increasing prominence as a research institution. The chapter then looks at Alexander's disappointment over the fact that the university's president, regents, and faculty of the zoology department failed to recognize the true value of the specimen collections or the research programs she had created. It also mentions the visit of President Theodore Roosevelt to the museum.
