Sarah Cooper Hewitt was groomed from childhood to be a philanthropist, educator, and collector. Surrounded by beautiful objects and a large family art library, Sarah developed an educated eye for design at an early age. She had a dynamic personality and was known for her sharp wit and strong likes and dislikes. European travels introduced her to knowledgeable dealers and museums, and she began collecting books, prints and drawings, and textiles for the museum at Cooper Union.
