History Museum hires first female president

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.
