R. Philip Hanes was among the farsighted few who helped lunch the American arts council movement in the 1950s. This former CEO of Hanes Companies has served on the boards of more than fifty national, state, and local arts agencies. He has received three presidential appointments, three honorary university degrees, and twenty-four arts awards. Long before environmental activism became a fashionable cause, his love and respect for the outdoors led him to help found three national conservation organizations and to serve on the boards of nineteen others. Along the way he assembled one of the largest and most respected private collections of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century American fine art. He lives with his wife, Charlotte, in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where they continue to serve their community and country.
