Worry over Clarke Museum continues
Scrutiny of leadership at the Clarke Museum hasn’t quietly gone away since the board unceremoniously fired longtime Curator Pam Service shortly before Christmas.
While the BOD is entrusted with care-taking priceless artifacts of Humboldt County history — and receives money from the City of Eureka to do so — the public is not welcome at its Thursday (March 8th) board meeting. When the public did attend its one annual public meeting in January, the process was anything but open according to some attendees.
Several members of the local heritage community sent a letter to the Clarke board on February 21st calling for them to reinstate Ms. Service and to be open about financial struggles facing the museum. But so far, the board is not open to being open about the storm that’s blowing at 240 E St.
