Adrienne Jamieson

Adrienne Jamieson is the MaryLou and George Boone Centennial Director of Stanford in Washington, D.C., where she directs the academic program, recruits local faculty and arranges student internships. Trained as a political scientist at UC Berkeley, she is an affiliated professor in the public policy program at Stanford and teaches one of the core seminars in Washington. She is the recipient of Stanford’s Dinkelspiel Award for Distinctive Contributions to Undergraduate Education.

Originally from Mystic, Connecticut, Adrienne worked as a lecturer, researcher and exhibit interpreter at Mystic Seaport, a reconstructed 19th-century seafaring village and museum dedicated to the history of whaling, fishing and shipbuilding in New England. She introduced visitors to 19th-century celestial navigation at the museum’s planetarium, as well as to the technology of whaling aboard the Charles W. Morgan, the only surviving wooden whaling ship in the United States. On our trip, Adrienne will speak about the economic and social history of New England in the 19th century, including the impact of the Civil War on Boston and New England. At Mount Washington, Adrienne will set the scene for the Bretton Woods Conference and its colorful and compelling participants. Adrienne has shared her passion for the east coast’s history with students through her course on enduring themes in American politics and Stanford in Washington field trips.
