About Edwin L. and Ruth E. Kennedy
The Kennedy Museum is named in honor of Edwin and Ruth Kennedy, lifetime supporters of Ohio University. Thanks to the generosity of the Kennedys, the Museum has grown into a world-class institution, bringing to the University and the region a wide range of permanent collections and traveling exhibitions, educational programming and special tours.
A native of Marion, Ohio, Edwin was educated at Ohio University, Ohio State University, and Harvard Business School. He served on the Ohio University Foundation Board of Trustees from 1959 through 1975. In 1930, he began collecting artwork, which developed into a world-renowned collection.

Ruth was a 1930 graduate of Ohio University. Together, she and Edwin endowed three major programs at OHIO: the Kennedy Lecture Series; the Distinguished Professor Award; and the Baker Research Award. They also donated the Southwest Native American Collection to the Kennedy Museum, a comprehensive and unique collection of Navajo textiles, weavings and jewelry.
