Katie Buesch has BA’s in Anthropology and Religious Studies from Humboldt State University, where she graduated summa cum laude in 2017. She started working at the Clarke Museum in September 2017. Her favorite part about working at the Clarke is uncovering interesting stories and items from the past while researching and sharing what she finds in the Museum blog. She is interested in the local redwood preservation movement, Victorian architecture, and strange local history stories. Her current research focus is in learning more about the Chinese expulsion events that took place in Eureka around the turn of the century. In her free time, she enjoys cross stitching and embroidery, reading, writing, and wandering around town looking at all the beautiful Victorian houses.
