My interview with David Skorton, former president of Cornell University and the Smithsonian’s 13th secretary, about how he wants to emphasize the arts and humanities at a time when they are being deemphasized nationally, appears as “On His First Day on the Job, Smithsonian Secretary David J. Skorton Discusses the Past and the Future” in Smithsonian Magazine.
