Kathryn Brogdon

Writer and Thinker

Bio

Kathryn Brogdon retired as Public Relations & Facilities Supervisor at the Armstrong Browning Library in May of 2011 in order to marry Spokane artist, Melville Holmes. She is a writer and editor, a media communications manager and occasionally builds web sites for small businesses. She  has contributed to or edited numerous academic and historical texts, Web sites, and news stories.

Kathryn maintains an interest in lifelong learning and cultural literacy as well as the issues of cultural institutions, particularly those with an emphasis on contemplative spaces, higher education and civic life. In 2002, her thesis on “The Library-Museum: An Inquiry into the Nature of a Hybridized Cultural Institution” opened up further study in the field of multi-purpose cultural institutions, bringing to light funding and identity issues, necessary overlap in professional disciplines, and a rethinking of education and institutional self-definition. Currently, she is finishing a souvenir book with her husband and hopes to either write a second one or renew an academic investigation into museum-related issues (whichever comes first). She recently stepped down as a trustee of a musical non-profit organization after nearly five years and is a volunteer advocate at local museum board meetings.
