This collection of paintings and monoprints were created by former University of North Dakota President, George Starcher. The collection, a 1995 estate gift from the Starcher family, is both colorful and mesmerizing. Starcher was President of the University of North Dakota from 1954-1971. Although his academic background was in mathematics, he became increasingly active as an art maker in his later years.Starcher, who served UND through the tumultuous 1960s, was well-respected in the Grand Forks community. As UND President, he tolerated demonstrations and promoted free speech, which perhaps helped to prevent the social unrest that other universities often faced during this era.
