The Armenian Library and Museum of America's search for a new director reached across the Atlantic and found its new director, Susan Pattie, in London.
Pattie takes over at ALMA after many years running the Armenian Institute in Britain, which she co-founded and served as director, according to a report in The Armenian Weekly. Her work at the Armenian Institute focused on "raising awareness of Armenian heritage and culture," according to the article.
She also worked as a university researcher and taught anthropology classes while in London and in other locations.
