FMNH-AAUP chapter establishment featured in Illinois Academe
The Fall 2009 issue of the Illinois conference newsletter includes an article on the founding of our chapter, titled "Museum Curators and the AAUP." It was written by chapter officers Ryan Williams, Bruce Patterson, Margaret Thayer, and Ken Angielczyk and is accompanied by a photo (of members available on short notice) taken in Stanley Field Hall by a helpful museum visitor.
