Harold Meyerman (1938–2015)

Harold J. Meyerman has passed away, according to the Desert Sun. He led the expansion of the Palm Springs Art Museum, which built two satellite campuses. As chairman of the museum’s board of trustees since 2006, he helped bring on Steven Nash, who served as executive director from April 2007 to the end of 2014. Later, he worked to select Elizabeth Neilson Armstrong as the museum’s next director, as reported here. The Palm Springs Art Museum’s endowment was only six million dollars when Meyerman assumed the chairmanship nearly nine years ago. It now stands at $15.5 million.
