Biographical / Historical

Born in Braintree, Mass., Agnes Margaret Storm attended the University of Connecticut. A registered nurse, she met Cary William Bok, son of Mary Louise Curtis Bok (founder of the Curtis Institute of Music), while he was in the hospital. They married in 1961 and had one daughter, Mary Louise, who lived only one day. Cary Bok died in 1970. Bok joined the board of the Curtis Institute in 1962, and her involvement grew into lifetime committment — as trustee, member of the board of overseers, honorary trustee, and a member of the Mary Louise Curtis Bok board. Curtis awarded her an honorary degree in 1983. A. Margaret Bok passed away in October 2018 at the age of 98.
