Members of The International Council of The Museum of Modern Art are saddened by the passing of our beloved member Margaret Milam McDermott of Dallas, at age 106. Margaret was an inspiration to those who knew her and to all who were affected by her enormous kindness and generosity. She joined the International Council in 1966. Devoted to her home state of Texas, Margaret was an inveterate traveler with the International Council who made friends around the world. Our deepest condolences are expressed to her daughter Mary McDermott Cook and her granddaughter Grace Ellen Cook.
