Thank you @artnews for the great write up on Moo Anderson, without whom the museum would not exist today.
Mary Margaret “Moo” Anderson, who together with her husband Harry “Hunk” Anderson cultivated a world-class collection of modern and contemporary American art, was a key figure in the Bay Area art scene. Moo played an integral role in the Andersons' donation of over 100 major works to Stanford University—including pieces by Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock, and Helen Frankenthaler—and her philanthropic activities extended to local schools, hospitals, and the nonprofit St. Francis Center.
