Burt Kummerow, Head Of The Maryland Historical Society, Stepping Down

Courtesy of the Maryland Historical Society

For the past five years, Burt Kummerow has served as the President and CEO of the Maryland Historical Society. Next Wednesday, he will hand over the reins of the museum to Mark Letzer, and he will take on a new role of advising the Historical Society on special projects. Burt Kummerow’s tenure as President of the Society included important anniversaries of both the War of 1812 and the Civil War, and their programs and exhibitions around those two events greatly expanded the public profile of the museum. He joins Tom in the studio.

Audio for this segment will be available by the end of the day.

Host, Midday (M-F 12:00-1:00)
