Institutional history: 

The musuem at Johns Hopkins was established in 1882 with the intention of using the ancient objects collected in teaching from Greece, Rome, and the Near East. In 1884, a collection of Egyptian objects were donated by a local collector, Colonel Mendes Israel Cohen. A large number of objects from the Egypt Exploration Funds excavations from 1905-18 were acquired on behalf of the Museum by James Teackle Dennis, a Baltimore native who worked on the excavations. 

Notes on distribution: 

The Myers collection from Eton College is currently being studied and catalogued both at John Hopkins and the University of Birmingham.
