Kim Murphy Kohn

Kim’s deep Montana roots brought her Butte in 1999 and to the Archives in 2011 where she fields historical and genealogical research inquiries from all over the world. She coordinates the distribution of historic photos to publications, professional papers, news, television and film media, and more. She facilitates the Brown Bag Lunch Speaker Series, bringing in speakers on local history, culture, and geology. Kim holds a B.A. in Historic Preservation from Mary Washington College, Fredericksburg Virginia, and is currently pursuing her M.A. in History from Montana State University, where her thesis explores immigration and ethnicity in Butte at the turn of the 20th century.
