Museum of Fine Arts, Houston Director for nearly 30 years looses battle with cancer.

Peter C. Marzio was the museum's longest-serving director. Marzio was a driving force for the museum; the permanent collection grew in size and focus. Artworks acquired under his direction nearly quadrupled the museum's holdings, and their origin grew beyond the mainstream Western voice. Notable accomplishments include a donation of pre-Columbian and Indonesian gold; additional areas of focus for collection and exhibition- Asian and Latin American artworks; growth in attendance, membership, and budget.
