Thursday, Gov. Timothy M. Kaine appointed James W. McGlothlin ’62 J.D. ’64 to the Board of Trustees for the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond. McGlothlin replaces his wife, Frances, whose 10-year term on the board ended earlier this year. McGlothlin is known for withdrawing a $12 million donation to the College of William and Mary because he was unhappy with former College President Gene Nichol’s removal of the cross from the Wren Chapel.

The couple has provided heavy support to the museum; in 2005, they gave the museum over $100 million in financial support and art. In appreciation, the new wing of the museum is named in their honor.
