Description Transcript (28 pages) of interview by Greg Smoak with Westminster College biology professor Bonnie K. Baxter on 9 December 2013. Part of the Great Salt Lake oral history project, tape U-3240
Abstract Bonnie Baxter is a professor of biology at Westminster College in Salt Lake City and the director of the Great Salt Lake Institute. Fascinated by science from a young age, she pursued work in genetics and DNA. Her interest has always been in liberal arts education, which is how she found Westminster College and in turn began her relationship with Great Salt Lake. She studies halophiles (salt loving bacteria) and works with people of widely divergent backgrounds who are also interested in the Lake. Through the Great Salt Lake Institute she has encouraged interdisciplinary relationships between people all over the world. Dr. Baxter discusses her work with the Lake at some length, and shares her favorite areas. She also emphasizes the importance of interaction with the ecosystem and believes strongly that children need to be involved with that interaction. Project: Great Salt Lake Oral History Project. Interviewer: Greg Smoak.
