Former Princeton provost to lead "ArtSTOR" organization
Posted April 5, 2001; 02:08 p.m.
L. Rudinstine, Princeton provost emeritus and president of Harvard University, will lead 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 project is sponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, whose president is former Princeton University President William G. Bowen.
Rudinstine will first lead an advisory group and will become chairman when he leaves 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."
