Yes, few do realize

“Few realize however, as they pass and review a long series of cases containing clothing, weapons, or pottery with stories of the history and use, what work has been done, perhaps through many years, what money spent and sacrifices made to bring such collections to New York from the primitive race which used them.”

– Henry Fairfield Osborn, 1912, in reference to Arctic expeditions
