During his term as President of the University from 1970 to 1980, Martin Meyerson created an assistant to the President position entitled the Assistant to the President for Special Projects. The President appointed Dilys Pegler Winegrad to this position in September 1975. The position's duties were principally those of speech-writing, but extended to a broad range of special projects, including the preparation of a volume of University history and management of the Arthus Ross Gallery, as well as other special tasks assigned by the University President. The position continued through the three administrations of Meyerson, Sheldon Hackney (1980-1993) and Claire Fagin (Interim President, 1993-1994), but by early 1994 the duties of directing and curating the Arthus Ross Gallery had increased to the point where that role became Dr. Winegrad's full-time responsibility and her reporting line moved to the Office of the Provost.
