Professor John Whipple Potter Jenks founded a museum of science at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, USA.

His office, a veritable cabinet of curiosities, has been recently restored.

Read about Jenks and his museum in the New York Times and at the museum's website.

Thanks for posting.
