MORGAN--Priscilla Miner. Born in Poughkeepsie, New York on October 10th, 1919, Priscilla died peacefully at home in Manhattan on March 30th, 2014. Great aunt and great friend. She studied at Vassar College and served as a WAVES officer during WWII. Priscilla began her ground-breaking career in show business as a producer of radio and early television. She became an agent, representing Julie Harris, Jerry Herman, Tad Mosel, Gian Carlo Menotti, Fred Coe and Arthur Penn at Liebling & Wood, the Priscilla Morgan Agency and the William Morris Agency. Priscilla then joined Menotti in Italy as associate director of the Spoleto Festival, which she brought to the United States. A founding board member of her friend Isamu Noguchi's Garden Museum in Long Island City, she devoted her last decades to furthering artistic causes and nurturing friendships across many generations. Memorial contributions, if desired, may be made to the Children's Aid Society. "To love with all one's soul and leave the rest to fate."

Please accept the deepest condolences of the entire SCAD family in your loss. I hope that the memories of your time with Priscilla may provide you with some measure of solace during this sorrowful time.

I well remember Priscilla's warmth, hospitality, and prescience – all of which she displayed in brilliantly uniting SCAD and the Lacoste School of the Arts. Priscilla will always be known, at SCAD and beyond, as the champion of myriad artists and bastions of art which owe their successes to her advocacy.

With hope and prayers for comfort and peace, and with enduring love for Priscilla,

Paula Wallace

I had the honor of meeting Priscilla a few years ago. We had dinner at her home in NYC and it was certainly an amazing experience. Her knowledge about art in every form was an inspiration to anyone who had the opportunity to meet her. I send my condolences to her family and friends. What and amazing woman! May she rest in peace.
