SAR Mourns the Passing of Eugene V. Thaw (1927-2018)

Jan 8, 2018

SAR is saddened to announce the passing of Eugene V. Thaw on Wednesday, January 3, 2018. He died at his home in Cherry Valley, New York, at the age of 90. As a passionate supporter and collector of Native American arts, Thaw had been a generous donor to SAR since his first gift in 1991. His greatest interest was in supporting projects that gave the collection at the Indian Arts Research Center (IARC) at SAR more visibility within the broader community, including access for Native American communities.

Over the course of nearly twenty years, Thaw and his foundation, the Eugene V. and Clare E. Thaw Charitable Trust, supported a micaceous pottery seminar and the resulting book, All That Glitters, by Duane Anderson. He also generously supported additional conferences at SAR and the construction of the reception center. In addition to supporting SAR, Thaw was a supporter of the Morgan Library in New York; the Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown, New York; the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York; the Glimmerglass Opera in Cooperstown, New York; the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum Research Center in Santa Fe; the College of Santa Fe; the Lensic Performing Arts Center; and the Santa Fe Opera. Thaw’s commitment to education and dissemination of information about Native American arts will be greatly missed. We send our deepest condolences to his family and the institutions that benefitted from his generosity. For more information about Gene Thaw, his life, and his philanthropy, please click here.
