Historical notes:

“The daughter of a successful Toledo real estate dealer, Florence was 27 years old and an avid art collector when she married Edward Drummond Libbey in 1890. Florence’s focus was on Asian art and ceramics.

Florence and Edward donated enormous financial and leadership resources to the Toledo Museum of Art (TMA), including the Scott homestead and other Monroe Street property where the museum opened in 1912. In 1912, she donated her entire art collection to the museum.

After Edward’s death, Florence served as trustee and vice president of the TMA. During the Great Depression, she financed construction of the music wings of the Museum, including the Peristyle, thus employing some 3,000 persons.

She left her estate to various interests, most notably the Toledo Museum of Art and a perpetual endowment to the Scott High School Library.”
