Charles Gunther's Snow Goggles

Worn to prevent snow blindness.


"These goggles came to the museum from the collection of Charles Gunther, a German immigrant, successful candy maker, and collector of historical and anthropological artifacts.

"Over many years, he amassed a spectacular assortment of artifacts, ranging from the significant (the bed on which Abraham Lincoln died) to the fantastical (the skin of the serpent from the Garden of Eden).

"He operated a private museum above his candy store, and it's possible that these goggles were on display there. When Gunther died in 1920, the museum purchased a large portion of his collection."
