Considered the “Mother of Lakeview Museum” Page was a leader among a group of individuals whose vision was to create a vibrant arts and sciences atmosphere in central Illinois.  After successfully raising funds and working diligently to fulfill the group’s desire, the dream was realized when Lakeview Museum opened its doors in 1965. Page continued to help establish Lakeview Museum as a first-rate institution by working with others to create the Pegasus Society, whose major donors underwrite gallery exhibitions, and the Renaissance Society, which receives significant charitable gifts annually. In 1978, Page was one of the first recipients of the Governor’s Awards for the Arts in Illinois, which Governor James Thompson described as “the highest honor the state can bestow in the arts, presented in recognition of outstanding contributions to Illinois’ cultural life.”
