Deborah and Philip D. English have been devoted to supporting the arts for many years, both through philanthropy and the development of significant collections. The Englishes’ impact is felt most strongly in their hometown of Baltimore, where they have each served on the boards of major cultural institutions, including the Walters Art Museum, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, and Baltimore Ballet. As an extension of their passion for majolica, both are also active on the board of the Majolica International Society, and Deborah has established the Marilyn Karmason Majolica Library, which houses an images database holding nearly sixteen thousand entries featuring Victorian Majolica and related materials. Recently, the couple made a $2.5 million gift to establish the Deborah and Philip D. English Curator of Decorative Arts, Design, and Material Culture and committed to donating more than 500 objects of majolica to the Walters Art Museum. They have played a major role as sponsors, lenders, and promoters of the Majolica Mania exhibition organized by Bard Graduate Center and the Walters Art Museum.
