Greenleaf was a collector of lace and a founder of the Needle & Bobbin Club. He donated large quantities of very high quality lace to the museum, along with 17th and 18th century embroidery, especially men’s waistcoats. The gifts, totaling over 900 objects, were the subject of a 1964 exhibition, The Greenleaf Collection: Textile Arts from the 16th to early 19th Century.
