Professor of Art Emeritus Agnes Rindge Claflin died. As professor of art (1931-65) and the founding director of the Vassar Art Gallery (1943-62), she strengthened both Vassar’s art history department—bringing émigré historians such as Richard Krautheimer and Adolf Katzenellenbogen to the faculty—and its collections.  At founding director Alfred Barr’s request she served on the advisory committee for the Museum of Modern Art in New York and as its assistant executive vice-president (1941-44).
