Here's the latest in my series of "Who Am I" quizzes, in which I supply a few biographical clues,, and you test your knowledge of progressive history by trying to identify the model progressive I'm describing. Have fun!

These are hard times for progressives--but is that really a new phenomenon in America? This little game doesn't have any bells or whistles, and it doesn't involved flinging any birds at any pigs, but remembering people who have led the way in progressive thinking and action can remind us that the struggle is not new and that we must continue.

Who am I?

I was a physician, educator and inventor in the first half of the 20th century.

I assembled the world's largest collection of Impressionist, post-Impressionist and early modern art.

I kept my collection together so that it could be studied by students and artists.

I supported African-American artists and was an early collector of African art.

My collection was been the subject of a controversial sale in recent years.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
