In Memoriam

The National Portrait Gallery is dedicated to using portraiture as a way to explore the lives of the many people who have made significant contributions to the history and culture of the United States. It is, therefore, important that we continue to use our collection to help commemorate loss during this unprecedented time. Even though our building is temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 crisis, we invite you to join us digitally for In Memoriam tributes. Here, you can learn about some of the remarkable people who have shaped our nation’s history and who have recently passed away.
