In Memoriam: Edward A. Hansen

Hood Quarterly, spring/summer 2011

The Hood Museum of Art lost a true friend, advocate for the arts, and patron this past December. Edward A. Hansen, father of Christopher Hansen, Class of 1985, and Victoria Hansen, Class of 1988, was a former longtime member (1982–88; 2003–8) of the Board of Overseers of the Hopkins Center and Hood Museum of Art. He and his wife, Julia, created the Hansen Family Fund in 1985, which has supported many important exhibitions at the museum. A distinguished corporate attorney, Ed also served on the boards of many other important arts and cultural institutions, including the Metropolitan Opera Club, Aspen Public Radio, and the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet. At his family’s request, contributions were made to the Hood Museum of Art for exhibitions and acquisitions in his memory. The museum and Dartmouth are deeply indebted to him and his family.
