The American Museum of Natural History will celebrate 105-year-old philanthropist Kathryn W. Davis at a special ceremony and luncheon today to celebrate her generous support of the Museum’s new Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) Program, the first freestanding master’s degree program offered by a museum to prepare science teachers.
