Sunday, February 19, 2012
Coming from the elite academic world of MIT and Harvard, Linda Endersby said she made a conscious choice to work in the handson realm of museums.
“I didn’t come here by a direct route,” the acting director of the Missouri State Museum said.
With a bachelor’s degree in math and computer science and a master’s in Medieval Russian history, Endersby combined the two interests at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for a doctorate in the history of science and technology.
