Articles Index, In Memoriam, People
Long-time supporter of ANTA, Katherine Warwick, died in Brookline, MA. on August 1st, 2000. Those who attended our spring and summer outings at the Hill-Stead Museum in Framington, CT, in the mid to late 1980's will remember Katherine as our enthusiastic and gracious hostess at these events. As curator of the museum, she opened the grounds to ANTA so that we could enjoy the beautiful surroundings and view the Impressionist masterpieces that filled the museum proper.
When she took early retirement from the museum in order to write a biography of Theodate Pope, one of the first licensed female architects in the US and the designer of the Hill-Stead, she first moved to the quaint village of Essex, CT. Subsequently, she moved to the town of Yarmouth on Cape Cod where she continued her writing while also working for a local bookseller.
A former assistant to the director of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, she had also served as curator at the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, OH, and as a department head at the Metropolitan Museum in NYC.
Katherine's affection for Charlie, her Norwich, and Leah, her Norfolk, was effusive and she continued her love affair with both breeds until her death. She is survived by her mother in Princeton, NJ and her brother in New York City.
ANTIC, December, 2000
