Horror Stories from a Historical Society

Joan Mazzolini's Plain Dealer story on the trials and tribulations of the Western Reserve Historical Society in Cleveland was published in early March, but I missed it then, so I'm passing it along now. It's frightening. Really frightening, especially for those of us who work in the non-profit historical society world in economic times like those we face today.

Definitely worth reading, since the society caused its own downfall, and continues to do so with its secrecy. The economic times has nothing to do with it. It was bad management and blind arrogance.
