The mission of the Barnes Foundation is to advance "the headway of training and the energy about the expressive arts and horticulture."Our organizer, Dr. Albert C. Barnes, trusted that craftsmanship had the ability to enhance minds and change lives. Our ious instructive projects depend on his lessons and stand-out accumulations—the two his craft property and the uncommon trees, blooms, and different plants at the Barnes Arboretum.Born into a common laborers family in Philadelphia, Albert Coombs Barnes 1872– 1951 demonstrated his knowledge and drive from the get-go.
He was acknowledged to the esteemed Central High School, moved on from medicinal school at the University of Pennsylvania, and went ahead to think about science in Germany. He made his fortune by co-creating the silver-based disinfectant Argyrol with his German associate Hermann Hille.
