He/she will be integrally involved in the intellectual life of the Society's museums: the River Museum, the Ham House, and the Old Jail Museum. The Director of Interpretation will be the lead humanist for the development of a series of exhibitions and interpretive programming supported by this endowment and presented at the three museums.
