Getty Trust President and CEO James Wood, one of the leading members of the Williams Art Mafia and, appropriately, a “leader of museum leaders,” died Friday at age 69. Wood was previously Director of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Wood is remembered by some of his peers (including Eph Michael Govan ’85) here.  Wood is one of the few prominent Ephs without a Wikipedia page.  Someone informed about his legacy should remedy that.
