Program…Paul Levine

Our speaker for the November 19 meeting will be Kerry Perkins, the Campbell Museums’ supervisor since 2014.  Kerry started working for the Campbell Historical Museum and Ainsley House in 2003.  She was hired as the Museums’ first Educator to run the education program.  Over the years, Kerry has expanded the Museums’ education programs to include two on-site field trips, traveling history trunks, family-friendly special events, an evening lecture series, and a Sunday jazz concert series.  Kerry has an intimate knowledge of the Museums’ collection, having curated a number of the Museums’ exhibits and working to preserve the collection of over 11,000 objects.  She enjoys making history relevant in our lives today. Kerry has a BA in English Literature and a MA in U.S. History.  Though not a Campbell resident, she feels a deep affinity for the community of Campbell and takes pride in representing its heritage at the Museums. She currently lives in Los Gatos.
