The Prints and Drawings Department was begun in 1991, after the Prints and Drawings Curator Fund goal was raised by Dr. Ira Jackson and Dr. Marjorie Horning. In January 1991, Barry Walker was named the first curator of prints and drawings at the MFAH, and has remained in that position since that time.
