The socialite and philanthropist, Diane “Dede” Wilsey, is stepping down from her post as President of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, which includes the de Young Museum and the Legion of Honor. In October, the de Young Museum’s Chief Financial Officer, Michele Gutierrez, accused Wilsey of giving a retired museum employee $450,000 without proper approval from the board. Wilsey claims that the payment was made due to the employee’s health problems.
