Christine Beshar, founding trustee, dies at 88
With great sadness, FMH&S announces the death of Christine Beshar, a founding trustee of the museum. Mrs. Beshar achieved a number of firsts in her lifetime. She was the first woman partner at a Wall Street firm and pioneered child care services at the law firm. She passed the NY bar by reading the law, not attending law school. Aside from her brillance, she had wit, compassion, optimism, love of art, and could truly think outside the box. We owe her a great debt. Enjoy her New York Times obituary by clicking here.
