Additional Information

George 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. Interestingly, UND presidents Frank McVey, Charles Kupchella, and Robert O. Kelley also had interests in making visual art.

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. Included in the 2023 exhibition, Beyond the Horizon.
