Page, Marie Danforth
Anne Hawks Vaux (1913-1978) was closely associated with the Athenaeum for many years. Her husband, George Vaux, served as President of the Board of Directors from 1965 to 1996. The Vaux family’s Athenaeum connections date back to the institution’s founding: lawyer and abolitionist Roberts Vaux held Share #3 from 1814 to 1836.
