Hood Quarterly, winter 2004

Robert Webster Fitz, a part-time member of the Hood’s security team since 1992, passed away in late September after a year-long battle with cancer.

Bob will be sorely missed by all of his friends and colleagues on the Hood staff, but especially by his daughter, Nancy McLain, the museum’s Business Manager.
