Smithsonian Regents Name Stonesifer as Chairwoman

The Smithsonian Board of Regents yesterday continued to transform its operational structure by electing Patricia Q. Stonesifer, the former chief executive of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, as the chairwoman of its board.

The position was created more than a year ago in the wake of scandal at the institution. Stonesifer will take over from current chairman Roger Sant in late January.
