"It is not surprising that museum founder Henry Francis du Pont chose to amass iron. In his endeavor to assemble comprehensive period room displays, such acquisitions were inevitable. Iron is present at Winterthur in the multitude of its original purposes, and yet it represents only a fraction of the total body available in early America. Nevertheless, the collection forms a significant compendium of both the surviving artifacts and the makers who created them."."
