Eloise Kruger

Eloise Andrews Kruger

Lincoln, Nebraska resident Eloise Andrews Kruger began collecting miniatures in the late 1930s. Miniatures were the perfect outlet to combine her love of history, interior design, and research.

Her dedication to acquiring historically accurate pieces led to the development of one of the most impressive miniature collections in the country. At the time of her death in 1995, her miniature collection numbers over 20,000 pieces.

Because of her strong belief in education, the family of Eloise Kruger donated her research library, notes, correspondence, and all her miniatures to the University of Nebraska Lincoln in 1997.
