Alumni of Distinction
Jeffrey Andersen '76

pictured: J. Andersen

Jeffrey Andersen '76 is the Director of the Florence Griswold Museum, where he has served for 41 years.  A native of Northern California, Andersen holds an M.A. in Museum Studies from Cooperstown Graduate Program (SUNY-Oneonta), Cooperstown, New York and a B.A. in History from Lewis and Clark College, Portland, Oregon.

Mr. Andersen is the author of numerous exhibition catalogues on historic American artists. Under his direction, the Florence Griswold Museum has evolved from a seasonal attraction with visitation of fewer than 1,000 per year to a dynamic art museum with a staff of 20 and visitation of nearly 80,000 annually.  Working closely with teams of trustees and professional colleagues, Andersen led a long-term effort by the Museum to acquire the entirety of the original Florence Griswold property and complete a transformative master plan designed to reposition the museum nationally as a center of American art. In November 2016 Andersen was recognized with the Lifetime Achievement Award from the New England Museum Association.        

Jeffrey Andersen recently completed his service as Secretary of the Board of Directors of Connecticut Humanities. He is a professional member of the American Alliance of Museums (AAM), for which he has led a number of visiting review committees for museums seeking accreditation or reaccreditation.   

He is married to Maureen McCabe, the Joanne Toor Cummings ’50 Emeritus Professor of Studio Art at Connecticut College in New London.  They reside in Quaker Hill, Connecticut.
