KMorris

Kristin Morris is the Associate Curator of the San Francisco Museum and Historical Society and a member of FoundSF's Editorial Committee.

I have a B.A. in history from the University of Virginia and an M.A. in history from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. I grew up in San Mateo County and prior to working in San Francisco, I was a curator and educator at History San Jose.

In my work, I've studied a wide variety of topics relating to U.S. history from beginning to end. I especially like to think about migration and how the dynamics of migration impact individuals, families, and societies. I am particularly fond of the Great Depression but find myself more and more drawn to the Cold War. I have conducted oral histories, worked in a variety of museum and archives settings, and met some really awesome history enthusiasts.

I do believe that anyone can study history, write history and contribute to our understanding of the past. I enjoy being part of this community which gives people a platform to share their stories and add depth and nuance to so many stories that have already been told.
