About Cotsen

Mr. Cotsen, former chief executive officer and chairman of the board of Neutrogena Corporation, founded the Cotsen Foundation for the ART of TEACHING in 2001. Education is one among several fields, including folk art, children’s literature, and archaeology, to which Mr. Cotsen has made a commitment. The Neutrogena Wing/Cotsen Gallery at the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico includes over 3,000 art objects and folk art. The Cotsen Children’s Library at Princeton University houses his collection of illustrated children’s books donated to the library in 1997. In recognition of Mr. Cotsen’s contributions, the University of California, Los Angeles renamed its Institute of Archaeology the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology in February 2000.
