About ALBERT M. BENDER (from Wikipedia):

******Albert Maurice Bender (born Dublin 1866 died San Francisco 1941) was a German-Irish-American art collector who was one of the leading patrons of the arts in San Francisco in the 1920s and 1930s. HE PLAYED A KEY ROLE IN THE EARLY CAREER OF ANSEL ADAMS and was one of Diego Rivera's first American patrons. By providing financial assistance to artists, writers, and institutions, he had a significant impact on the cultural development of the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.

A lover of literature from an early age, Bender began collecting rare books and helped create the Book Club of California in 1912. Inspired by his cousin Anne Bremer, a professional artist, Bender began collecting art,

Bender enjoyed giving things away even more than he liked acquiring them, and he became a prolific donor to Bay Area museums and libraries. Beginning in 1932 he donated 260 pieces of art to the National Museum of Ireland in memory of his mother. He gave important collections of rare books and fine printing to Mills College, Stanford University, the University of California, and the San Francisco Public Library. Stanford University has a Bender Room in its library.

Bender helped launch the career of many artists and photographers, including Ansel Adams. He financed the publication of Adams's first portfolio (Parmelian Prints of the High Sierras, 1927) and his first book (Taos Pueblo, with author Mary Hunter Austin, 1930).******
