Jan Seidler Ramirez is the founding Chief Curator and Director of Collections for the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in New York City. Immediately prior to her 2006 appointment, she worked as consultant at the Alliance for the Arts and as a consulting curator to the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation, which was spearheading renewal plans for the destroyed 16-acres of the World Trade Center. Previously, she served as Vice President and Museum Director of the New-York Historical Society, where she played a major role in developing that institution’s 20th century collecting program and its History Responds initiative, a series of exhibitions, public programs, and collection acquisition efforts focused on the 9/11 attacks in their broad historical context.

Ramirez has held curatorial, interpretation, collections development and senior administrative posts at museums in Boston and New York, including the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Hudson River Museum and the Museum of the City of New York. She also has taught and lectured on American and arts, and material culture at colleges, institutions and conferences across the country, served on the Boards of various museums and nonprofit cultural/educational organizations, and authored numerous publications relating to American arts and cultural history. A graduate of Dartmouth College, Jan earned her Ph.D. in American Studies at Boston University.
