The original Corythosaurus skull collected by George Sternberg in 1920. There are a few reasons a dinosaur's head might get separated from its body. Fossils erode over the millions of years they spend in the ground, quietly weathering away. Finding an entire skeleton is rare and takes remarkable preservation circumstances. Sometimes, the skeleton becomes disarticulated naturally and the whole thing is never uncovered.
Josef von Sternberg was not only one of the great directors of the 1920s and '30s, he was also an art collector in the circle of the enterprising dealer Galka Scheyer. She's the subject of the current "The Maven of Modernism" exhibit at the Norton Simon in Pasadena, and that enterprising museum is showing some of Von Sternberg's films along with it. Closing the series is 1932's "Shanghai Express," a stunning black-and-white extravaganza starring Von Sternberg's muse Marlene Dietrich as the enigmatic Shanghai Lily. "It took more than one man," she states enigmatically, "to change my name to Shanghai Lily."
Marc Sternberg is the foundation's education program director for kindergarten through 12th grade. He says the loan programs will add about 18,000 charter school seats by 2027. Sternberg says the funds will allow schools to put more money toward teacher salaries, after-school programs and professional development.
