Guggenheim family


Guggenheim family

The Guggenheim family refers to a number of descendants of Meyer Guggenheim who were known for their successes in mining and smelting, and later for their philanthropy in diverse areas such as modern art and aviation, including several Guggenheim Museums as well as the Guggenheim Aeronautical Laboratory and I.
