Former provost to lead "ArtSTOR" organization
Posted April 5, 2001; 01:57 p.m.
Neil L. Rudenstine, Princeton provost emeritus and president of Harvard University, will head the board of a new not-for-profit organization that will develop, store and distribute electronically digital images and related materials for the study of art, architecture and other fields in the humanities.
The initiative, called "ArtSTOR," is sponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, whose president is former Princeton University President William G. Bowen. Rudenstine first will lead an advisory group and will assume the duties of chairman after leaving the Harvard presidency July 1.
"Having worked closely with Neil Rudenstine over more than 20 years at Princeton and at the Mellon Foundation, I know what an extraordinarily insightful and effective leader he is," Bowen said. "I believe that his knowledge of the humanities and of art history, his exceptional organizational skills, and his familiarity with leading scholars in the field qualify him superbly to guide the development of this new scholarly resource."
