Ted Maust is currently pursuing an M.A. in Public History at Temple University and leading tours at a historic site to gain experience and sometimes pay the bills. He writes occasional posts for AnabaptistHistorians.org and StarsHollowHistoricalSociety.wordpress.com. His academic interests include house museums, Anabaptist/Mennonite history, East African studies, cultural criticism, and thinking about ways for cultural institutions to share stories outside their walls and their “lifeblood” constituencies. Ted earned his Bachelor’s degree from Goshen College (Ind.) with majors in History and English and worked for four years at the Wisconsin Historical Society Press.
