When the team of Arthur A. Houghton, Jr., John M. Gates, and Sidney Waugh (with Houghton as captain, Gates as tastemaker, and Waugh as Designer) changed Steuben's direction in 1933, it was not the modern movement as typified by the Bauhaus that it espouse. It leaned toward (but did not swallow whole) Art Deco as it had declared itself at the Exposition des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels in Paris in 1925. There were elements of "machine art" and streamlining in Art Deco's geometrical shapes, and traces of Art Nouveau in its free spirit and its use of flowing figures and floral ornaments. As a style, it was disdainfully called "modernistic" by the functionalists; they thought it impure, adulterated. But the public liked it because it was up-to-date but not aseptic.

As one of her research interests, Gail Bardhan, retired librarian from the Rakow Research Library at CMoG, kept a list of American museums with Steuben glass in their collection. I have used her research to find examples of Steuben glass in the collection of the Museum of Fine Art, Houston. Scott Hansen
