In Memoriam: Robert Webster Fitz

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. His professional dedication—the better part of his first career was spent as the Deputy Fire Chief in nearby Lebanon, New Hampshire—was admired by all who knew him, and his sense of humor never failed to lighten the Hood’s galleries.

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.

Terry Adkins was the Artist-in-Residence at Dartmouth College during the summer of 2003. A memorable exhibition of his work took place in the Jaffe-Friede and Strauss Galleries in Hopkins Center at that time, and Still (2000) was a centerpiece of that project.

Hood Quarterly, winter 2004

Contemporary artist Kara Walker is known for her highly charged silhouetted visual narratives of masters and slaves in the pre–Civil War South. One of her primary artistic themes is the sexual domination of female black slaves by white masters; through images of these graphic violations, she evokes the enormity of the crime committed against enslaved Africans and their descendents.
