Marshall Holleb

Marshall Holleb died in early December in Chicago. He was, and his wife Doris remains, a long-time member of the Oriental Institute Visiting Committee, and they were generous donors to the Institute. It is in their honor that the Doris and Marshall Holleb Family Temporary Exhibition Gallery of the Oriental Institute Museum is named. Marshall was the subject of a Chicago Stories television documentary, and a short biography is available here.

With his death, the Oriental Institute lost a good friend.
