Corporation gives $100,000 to dentistry museum at UMB

The Samuel D. Harris National Museum of Dentistry at the University of Maryland, Baltimore has received a $100,000 gift from a subsidiary of 3M, the Minnesota-based distributor of dental materials and laboratory products.

The museum will rename its education room for the corporation in appreciation of 3M Dental's gift. 3M Dental, one of 40 subsidiaries of 3M, has been selling dental products since 1964, when its tooth-colored dental filling material was the first commercial restorative on the market.

In its third year, the museum, at Greene and Lombard streets, is named for a pioneer of pediatric dentistry.
