History Museum hires first female president

Wednesday, 22 January 2014 09:25 Published in Local News
A New Mexico archeologist, considered an accomplished fundraiser and longtime museum director, is the new president of the Missouri History Museum. 
Dr. Frances Levine was officially hired on Tuesday, ending the museum's search for a new leader since the 2012 departure of former embattled president Robert Archibald. Archibald's tenure was tainted with executive pay controversies and a suspect real estate deal. 
The 63 year old Levine, meanwhile, is the first female president of one of St. Louis’s five, tax-supported cultural institutions.
She has a doctorate in anthropology from Southern Methodist University and turned Santa Fe’s Palace of the Governors into the award-winning, 96-thousand square foot, New Mexico History Museum.
Levine will make $260,000 a year in total compensation, compared with the $515,000 made by Archibald. She reports for her new post in St. Louis on April 15.

Women encouraged to follow farming dreams

Wednesday, 22 January 2014 06:48 Published in Local News

BOLIVAR, Mo. (AP) - The University of Missouri Extension is offering a farm management course geared to women.

The series of six classes begins March 3 at the Springfield-Greene County Botanical Center in southwest Missouri.

The courses are part of Annie's Project, a program that started in Illinois in 2003 and has since spread to other states. The program is named for an Illinois woman who ran a farm and raised six children in the 1950s.

Topics to be covered include farm record-keeping and taxes, business plans, pasture rental contracts, titling property and estate planning.

MU Extension specialists and guest speakers will teach the course, which is limited to the first 25 women who register.
