And the Winner Is...

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner! In spite of highly undemocratic multiple voting by some (*ahem* Ceri), I have to announce that the title of Ultimate Historical Hottie goes to Eleanor Hewitt, co-founder of the Cooper-Hewitt Museum, by two votes (which may have been Ceri's, in which case we would once again have a tie, but it's just too difficult to recount!)


I would also like to point out that although I noted Henry Wellcome as representing the UK (as his museum influence has been here), he was actually American, and so this contest has also brought out some national divisions. Apparently, the US makes good museum hotties; the more you know!

Remind yourselves of the contest and review the nominees of this very difficult competition here.

Ah, but if it's eccentric museums that we like, then surely we should also love eccentric museologists - and you don't get very much more eccentric than ole' Henry. Tash or no tash, the photos show a man with imaginative dress sense, and the Wellcome Collection shows a man with frankly bizarre interests!
