The director who managed the creation of the National Museum of the Marine Corps retired today. We will miss her and her leadership.
It is with great pride, honor and, selfishly, some sadness that we bid fair winds and following seas to Lin Ezell, director of the National Museum of the Marine Corps (NMMC) as she retires after 34 years of faithful service to our Nation’s museums.
Ms. Ezell joined the NMMC team in 2006 and is responsible for leading that team in standing up the Museum. Though she never wore the Marine Corps uniform few civilians have ever done more to promote the Corps and its rich history.
She will leave our official ranks but remain Curator Emeritus of the Marine Corps and always be a member of the Museum family. Ms. Ezell is also responsible for leading the team that stood up the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center. Learn more about her rich career at https://www.usmcmuseum.com/directors-biography.html
