I am a Professor Emerita at UCLA. I do historical research and am working on a biography of Anne Morgan, daughter of J. Pierpont Morgan. This spring I am doing research at the Morgan Library. In the past I have done historical research in Paris, London, and Dakar Senegal. Often I travel alone for research trips, but some times my husband Steve joins me. We have a son who lives in Brooklyn Heights with his wife and baby born in April 2012. Steve and I love dogs--we have a black shepherd/lab/etc mix named Tigger. For room rentals we are happy to be in a place that has a friendly dog! My hobbies are writing poetry, reading and going to museums whenever possible. My favorite cities are Paris, LA and NYC.
