Ruth Carter Stevenson (1923–2013)
The Amon Carter Museum of American Art’s board of trustees and staff mourn the passing of their longtime president of the board, Ruth Carter Stevenson. The daughter of the museum’s namesake, Amon G. Carter Sr. (1879–1955), Stevenson was solely responsible for seeing that her father’s wish to establish a museum for the city of Fort Worth was realized. Under her leadership, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art opened to the public in January 1961.
