This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Professor Jerome Allan Donsons fulltime museum directorship came at the Florence Museum in South Carolina after a national search.  He was a "Rockefeller Fellow" at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) and worked on the international program, arranging traveling exhibits. 

He was selected by the U.S. State Department and U.S. Information Agency to direct the American Vanguard exhibit based on action painting which traveled widely through Eastern Europe and major European capitals (Vienna, London, Salzburg, Belgrade).  This tremendous collection (84 major paintings) had a powerful impact wherever installed.  Some of the artists included Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, Grace Hartigan, Franz Kline, and Jack Tworkov.  He was invited by Oscar Kokoshka and the school of art Hohensalzburg who regarded this exhibit as comparable to the influential Armory Show of 1913. 

Subsequently he became the executive director of the Office of Cultural Affairs of New York City.  Donson has directed some of the most important Museums exhibitions throughout the United States traveling to Europe.
