The Maryland Center for History and Culture (formerly the Maryland Historical Society) recently announced the appointment of Clinton Daly as the institution’s new Board Chair.
Prior to being appointed chair, Daly served on the the board of the Maryland Center for History and Culture for five years. Daly also serves on the boards of the Chesapeake Bay Outward Bound School and Mercy Health Services, and as an advisory board member for the Center of Environment and Society (CES) at Washington College.
In a press release, Daly described his appointment as a great honor. “Taking on this new role with the Maryland Center for History and Culture at this time of transition offers great opportunity. More than any other organization in our state – the Maryland Center for History and Culture understands how to connect people of all ages to the power of history. Continuing that tradition – one that began in 1844 – especially as we embark on a fundraising campaign effort meant to further the reach and offerings of the museum and library, is a great honor,” Daly said.
The Maryland Center for History and Culture also announced the addition of four new board trustees– Frederick C. Leiner, Katherine Pinkard, C. John Sullivan, Jr., and Tyler Tate.
