She became an art historian, and worked on Mabel Dodge Lujan’s papers at the Beinecke Library, Yale University. She served as Curator of Primitive Art at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, and also as the Director of the Museum of Fine Arts, Santa Fe (now the NM Museum of Art). She has published several books, including From the Far Away Nearby (on Georgia O’Keeffe); Contemporary Mexican Art and Design; and I Wear the Morning Star, a catalogue of material culture related to the Native American Ghost Dance of the 1890s. More recently she has been working on the history and legacy of the Manhattan Project, serving as a consultant for Race for the World’s First Atomic Bomb: A Thousand Days of Fear (PBS/BBC, 2015). She has published in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientist, and recently organized the conference, “Legacies of the Manhattan Project,” held in 2015 at the Santa Fe Institute.
