The Ellen Weis Archive

Ellen H. Weis (1957-2021) cofounded the Museum of Modern Mythology in 1982 in San Francisco. The purpose of the museum was to study and present mythic archetypes as they appear in modern form. The Ellen Weis Archive continues her work, investigating and preserving artifacts, and raising awareness of the role of archetypes in society.
