In Memoriam: Robert Webster Fitz

Posted on January 01, 2004 by Kristin Swan

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.
