The School for Advanced Research joins the community in mourning the loss of John S. Catron.

Mr. Catron, the grandson of New Mexico’s first U.S. senator Thomas B. Catron, carried on his family’s legacy through a career dedicated to the pursuit of law and a commitment to philanthropic endeavors. John was a supporter of many Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico organizations. The School for Advanced Research had the honor of working with John for more than two decades. Through his guidance as a board member, and later an honorary board member, John helped shape the trajectory and success of the School.

SAR’s President, Michel F. Brown, notes, “Although John Catron and I first met in the 1990s, I truly came to know him after becoming president of SAR in 2014. Aside from his steadfast loyalty to SAR, John impressed me as a man of uncommon dignity and modesty leavened by an unfailing sense of humor. We at SAR join his family in mourning his loss while at the same time celebrating the long and eventful life of this remarkable New Mexican.”

A brief article on the life of Mr. Catron can be found in the Santa Fe New MexicanAn additional obituary can be found on Legacy.com.
