    As I remember our dear colleague, Louise Pubols, former Senior Curator of History here at the Oakland Museum of California who passed away earlier this year, I can picture so many moments from the years we worked together. Memories of her are intertwined with all of the exhibitions she led throughout her tenure here, like The 1968 Exhibit in 2012 and Above & Below: Stories of our Changing Bay in 2013.
