O'NEILL--John P. The Trustees and staff of The Metropolitan Museum of Art mourn with deep sadness the passing of John O'Neill, the Museum's Publisher and Editor in Chief. In a career spanning 31 years at the Metropolitan Museum through his retirement in December, he oversaw the publication of more than one thousand exhibition and collection catalogues as well as the quarterly Bulletin, annual Journal, and all the gallery labels accompanying works of art in the Museum. John's extraordinary commitment to quality raised the standards for museum publishing worldwide, and his passions for art, literature, and above all opera were inspirations to those around him. He was respected and loved by his Museum colleagues and will be greatly missed. We extend our deepest condolences to his entire family. Visiting hours will take place Thursday, February 25, 4-7pm at Frank E. Campbell, 1076 Madison Avenue, and a memorial service will be held on a date to be announced. James R. Houghton, Chairman Thomas P. Campbell, Director Emily K. Rafferty, President

I will miss John's unique sense of humor and love of life.

To say he had a full and accomplished life is an under statement at best.

He will be missed !!!
