Curtiss Museum names Johnson new director

HAMMONDSPORT--The Glenn H. Curtiss Museum announced the appointment of Benjamin Johnson to succeed Trafford Doherty as the executive director of the museum. Johnson will join the museum in mid-June and will assume his responsibilities as executive director upon Doherty's retirement July 29.
Benjamin Johnson comes to the Curtiss Museum from the Springfield Museum in Springfield, Oregon, where he has served as executive director for two and a half years. He holds a master of arts in history from the University of Nebraska and a bachelor of arts in history from Nebraska Wesleyan University. Previously, Johnson held various positions at the Strategic Air and Space Museum in Ashland, Nebraska.
"We're very pleased to have a professional of Ben's experience joining our team at this crucial point," stated Curtiss Museum President, Richard Honeyman. "We're just completing a major renovation project and are embarking on additional plans that will further enhance the already excellent visitor experience that our museum provides. Ben will be spearheading our strategic plan for future growth and expansion."
Open year-round, the museum is home to a collection of exhibits and artifacts relating to early aviation, motorcycles, regional history and the enduring genius of inventor Glenn Hammond Curtiss. Curtiss has been called the "Father of Naval Aviation" and was a pioneer in aviation as well as motorcycle manufacturing.
