Wilton S. Dillon shows how the Smithsonian came to be the institution we know today. Under the twenty-year leadership of “Sun King” Dillon Ripley, the museum was reinvented and remains a key contributor to the world of higher learning, functioning diplomatically as the ministry of culture for the United States. Dillon provides backstage insights into Ripley’s quest for the wholeness of knowledge, describing how he inspired the Smithsonian’s role as a “theater of ideas as well as artifacts.” Under his tutelage, the National Mall became a playground for world intelligentsia in the shadow of the nation’s political capital.
