Hyde Collection Art Museum Appoints Randall Suffolk as Director


Randall Suffolk has been appointed the director of The Hyde Collection Art Museum. He has been serving as the Museum's acting director since September 1999 when Kathleen Monaghan resigned to assume a position with the Fresno Metropolitan Museum of Science, History and Art. The board of trustees unanimously affirmed his appointment at their February meeting. "We are extremely happy with Mr. Suffolk's performance as acting director," stated chairman of the board Mario Papa, "We are very pleased to name him as full-time director of The Hyde Collection."
