This episode of the Drexel InterView is an in-depth look at the forthcoming Museum of the American Revolution being planned for Independence Mall in Philadelphia. The episode includes interviews with four key figures involved with this museum's creation: Michael C. Quinn, who is President and CEO of The American Revolution Center; H. F. Gerry Lenfest, media entrepreneur, Philadelphia legend and latter-day "founding father," whose lifelong dream has been to help create a museum devoted to the American Revolution; Dr. R. Scott Stephenson, Director of Collections and Interpretation, who will discuss the collection; Robert A.M. Stern, dean of the Yale School of Architecture and the architect of the museum, who will explain its design and show us a model. This is a wide-ranging set of interview, complete with extensive b-roll dealing with the site and various artifacts to be featured in the museum that connect to our nation's history.
