House museums: What kinds of stories do they tell? What kinds do they leave out? Dr. Patricia West McKay explores the role of gender and race in American house museums. Her book Domesticating History: The Political Origins of America's House Museums became an instant classic. She is the recently retired Curator/Historian of Martin Van Buren National Historic Site in Kinderhook and is now Co-Director of the University at Albany’s Center for Applied Historical Research.
