The Semitic Museum was founded by Jacob H. Schiff in 1889. It is no longer a public museum but a research and teaching collection used in connection with the academic work of the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilization. Curators include David Gordon Lyon (1891-1922) who was also Honorary Curator (1922-1935) and Robert Henry Pfeiffer (1931- ). John Orne served as Curator of Arabic Manuscripts (1899-1911).
