Location: Perkins Gallery

Sponsor: Doris Duke Archivist, RBMSCL

Most biographies of Doris Duke have focused on her glamorous lifestyle, often overlooking her efforts to make a difference in the world.  This exhibit reveals how she continued the family's quiet but innovative pattern of philantrhopy, her drive to address environmental issues, her keen eye for art and design, her passion for preserving colonial-era houses, and her love of music.
