The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation of New York City and Princeton, New Jersey in the United States, is a private foundation with five core areas of interest, endowed with wealth accumulated by the late Andrew W. Mellon of the Mellon family of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It is the product of the 1969 merger of the Avalon Foundation and the Old Dominion Foundation. These foundations were set up separately by Paul Mellon and Ailsa Mellon-Bruce, the children of Andrew W. Mellon. It is housed in the expanded former offices of the Bollingen Foundation in New York City, another educational philanthropy supported by Paul Mellon. Don Michael Randel is the Foundation's president. His predecessors have included William G. Bowen, John Edward Sawyer and Nathan Pusey. Randel is the former President of the University of Chicago. In 2004, the Foundation was awarded the National Medal of Arts. (Excerpt from Wikipedia article: Andrew W Mellon Foundation)
