* here's a webpage of an attempted formation of regional natural  
history museums in Canada along the lines you mention -  
http://pinicola.ca/m2002b.htm - written as advice to others learned as  
our museum was failing because we had assumed that the museum  
principles were more widely understood than they were, and the  
organization was taken over by individuals who didn't understand what  
it was meant to be. We could make this over into a history of the  
founding and failure of the EOBM if that would be of interest, or just  
provide a few paragraphs of context for a link to this page.

"[The] two fundamental steps of scientific thought - the conjecture  
and refutation of Popper - have little place in the usual conception  
of intelligence. If something is to be dismissed as inadequate, it is  
surely not Darwin [, whose] works manifest the activity of a mind  
seeking for wisdom, a value which conventional philosophy has largely  
abandoned." Ghiselen, 1969. Triumph of the Darwinian Method, p 237.
