"Geeky" curator enjoys complexity of history

On September 4, 2013, Sarah Bellian became the new curator of the Museum of the Gulf Coast in Port Arthur, Texas. A self-professed "geek," Bellian often gets her historical fix in the SCA where she practices rapier combat and archery. The new curator was interviewed recently by Erinn Callahan of the Port Arthur News.

“I like history because it's complex,” Bellian said. “Every time you think you've learned it all, somebody throws a monkey wrench in it and you learn something new. Among her plans for the museum include traveling exhibits on the circus in the 1940s and on the Vietnam War.
