Charles Mason could be considered a self-made man. When he was 10, his mother died of heart failure and his father had already left the family, leaving Mason and his two older sisters orphaned in Noblesville, Ind., a town of 9,000 people. Their neighbor, Myrtle Cosgrove, took the three children in for four years. She had lost her husband six months prior. ?A lot of friends and neighbors came and helped me,? Mason said. That experience colored the way Mason lived, he said, proving to him that it is better to give than to receive.

Pacific Asia Museum, celebrating its 40th anniversary in Pasadena, may be one of the most overlooked cultural resources in Southern California. “People call it a 'hidden gem,'" said Executive Director Charles Mason. Yet this Chinese-style building, designed around a gracious garden courtyard, houses a treasure trove of Asian and Pacific Island art - and has a notable, if improbable history. Built in 1924 by renowned art collector and entrepreneur Grace Nicholson, it served as her residence, gallery space and Treasure House of Oriental and Western Art until 1943, when Nicholson deeded the property to the city of Pasadena as a cultural center.
