The Connecticut League of History Organization welcomes Rainey Tisdale, independent curator, blogger, author of “Do History Museums Really Need Objects”, (History News, 2011) and in 2014, author of Creativity in Museum Practice, with co-author Linda Norris. After the Boston Marathon Bombing, Ms. Tisdale led a consortium of local museums, libraries and archives in collecting and interpreting the horrific event, with emphasis on programming for the one-year anniversary in April, 2014. Recently Ms. Tisdale curated “Dear Boston: Messages from the Marathon Memorial,” an exhibition featuring objects from the Copley Square makeshift memorial.
