Alexandra Lord (who was a postdoc at UCSF when I was a postdoc at UC Berkeley– we should have been on opposing softball teams) and Julie Anne Taddeo have started Beyond Academe, ” to educate historians about opportunities for historians “outside the box”—that is outside of academia.”

Lexi actually beat me for a history of science job at Montana State once. I had been trying to convince myself that having lived in the Bay Area, Rio, Tokyo, and Philadelphia, the natural next step in my life was MSU; instead, I had to settle for the Britannica gig, Chicago, and an apartment three blocks from Wrigley Field with views of Lake Michigan and downtown, while she took the bullet and went to Bozeman. Thanks, Lexi!
