After graduating from Wellesley in 1894, Annette Finnigan (1871–1940) was active in the suffrage movement in Houston and throughout Texas. She was also a world traveler and collector of works of art, rare books, and antiques. In 1931, she began donating gifts to the MFAH and Houston Public Library. Her gifts of nearly 200 works of ancient art are the foundation for the Museum’s collection of antiquities.
