Anitra Bishop named
new curator of education
The staff of the Ontario
Museum of History &
Art will soon have a
new face with the
addition of Anitra
Bishop, the new
curator of education.
She will formally
arrive on Oct. 24.
Anitra has a master’s
degree in history
and archival studies
from Claremont Graduate University and is currently obtaining her PhD in U.S. history from CGU.
She comes to us from Columbia Memorial Space Center in Downey, where she worked as a curator and archivist. Her broad range of experience there includes creating exhibitions and educational activities for children, developing STEM-related lesson plans, generating marketing materials, developing outreach activities, and helping to ensure proper care of collection and archive materials.
Anitra has also worked as an archival fellow at the Honnold-Mudd Library as well as the Cooper Regional History Museum, Chino Valley Brewery (excelling in her knowledge of beer history, of course), and Huntington Library as a research intern and the National Archive and Records Administration (NARA) as an archival intern.
Anitra is a lifelong resident of the Inland Empire, and she is a welcome addition to our excellent staff team. She has jumped right into the thick of things with a positive and outgoing personality. We are glad to have her on board! We will be working to connect Anitra with our many volunteers.
To our friends, while we remain closed due to COVID-19 health and safety measures, we are here for our community. We are presenting
our programs on Zoom. All programs require
a reservation, please call (909) 395-2510.
