Collection Creator Biography:

Kelleher, Patrick J. (Patrick Joseph), 1917-

Patrick Joseph Kelleher, born in 1917, was the much-loved director of the Princeton University Art Museum from 1960 to 1972. During World War II, Kelleher headed the Greater Hesse Division of the monuments, fine arts, and archives section of the United States Army's Office of Military Government for Germany, recovering and returning works of art in Europe. He was most notably in charge of the Holy Crown of Hungary during this time. Kelleher eventually moved to Princeton, where he supervised the first modern expansion of the University's Art Museum. He oversaw the construction and dedication of a new museum building in 1966, and served on the committee that oversaw the selection and installation of the Putnam Memorial Sculptures on campus. He passed away on June 16, 1985.
