SAR Remembers Betty M. Vortman

Dec 2, 2018

Betty Vortman

The School for Advanced Research joins the community in mourning the loss of Betty M. Vortman.
 
Michael F. Brown, SAR President, states, “Betty and her late husband, Luke, were tremendous supporters of SAR throughout their lifetimes. She was steadfast in her dedication to educational initiatives, stewardship of the Native American collections at the IARC, and the betterment of her community.”
 
Betty Vortman was an active member of SAR’s Board from 1988 to 1998 and continued to guide SAR more recently as an honorary board member. Her establishment of the Luke J. and Betty M. Vortman Endowment Fund at SAR, in addition to an endowment fund at the Albuquerque Community Foundation, will provide a lasting legacy for SAR’s public lecture series and Creative Thought Forum. Brown adds, “We are truly grateful for all of the impact she had on the scholar and artist community over the years and look forward to continuing to honor her life through these SAR initiatives.”
 
A brief obituary for Betty Vortman was published in the Albuquerque Journal on Sunday, December 2, 2018. Read the obituary online…  
 
SAR is honored to have been a part of the Vortmans’ lives and humbled by the many ways Betty’s life and work have benefited the community.
