Today is the 80th anniversary of the "B. Virdot" ad!

This ad and editorial appeared in the December 18, 1933 issue of the Repository

Years later, Ted Gup would discover the ad, letters, checks, and thank you notes in this suitcase:

He would publish a wonderful book called A Secret Gift.  And the Museum would have the  opportunity to mark the 80th anniversary of this amazing story of generosity in a 3D way with a Keller Gallery exhibit:

Wishing you all a safe, healthy, and happy holiday season and 2014.  I hope this book continues to inspire us all to help others in need for years to come, "in the spirit of B. Virdot."
