About Me

I am a public historian, museum curator, and writer. I specialize in the history of healthcare and of science in society, with a social history angle.

My other professional interests include the history of American naturalists, the history of kitchenware and food, legal history as it pertains to public health, and collective identities. 

Currently I work as the Exhibit and Education Specialist at the Paul S. Russell, MD Museum of Medical History and Innovation at Massachusetts General Hospital. 

My forthcoming book Exploring American Healthcare Through 50 Historic Treasures is available for preorder here. Order it from your favorite bookstore, direct from, or request it at your local library.

This website is an online portfolio. For more of my writing on museums, history, education, and community participation, see my blog, A Catalog of Curiosity. You can also find me on Twitter @tegankehoe, on Facebook  /tegankehoewriter, and on tiktok (I do history content!) @tegan_kehoe. To get in touch, write me at tegan dot kehoe at gmail dot com.
