Called To Serve

The Remarkable Life of Philbrook's First Director

In honor of today's 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, read the amazing true story of our first Director, Eugene Kingman. 

Inspired to serve after Pearl Harbor, Kingman left Philbrook (after only 3 years) and joined the U.S. Army where he served as a cartographer. 

A remarkable life as artist, educator, museum director, and more.
