Dr. John D. Maguire
In addition to his extensive career as an educator, political and social activist, poet, arts collector and philanthropist, Dr. John D. Maguire’s role as a champion and advocate for the Claremont Museum of Art has been invaluable to its realization and ongoing evolution. His vision, dedication and commitment to the Museum remains unparalleled, and he continues to contribute his time and energy as counsel to the Board of Directors in this critical period of the Museum’s development.
