Randy Shulman, Huntington Library’s V.P. for Advancement is October 2022 Featured Speaker

October 18 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Randy Schulman works closely with staff throughout the Huntington Library organization as they further programmatic dynamism. Over the past two decades, the once insular institution has evolved into truly world-class institution.  New and revitalized gardens and galleries serve an expanding set of diverse audiences.    Now home to 1,800 scholars annually, the humanities research being conducted at The Huntington makes it one of the most active in the nation.  At the same time, using the collections to help K-12 teachers engage their students through innovative learning is now also a central focus of its expanding education programs.  

At the same time, new galleries, gardens, and exhibitions for the public are reaching new audiences in ways never before possible.  These have become wonderfully useful tools through which to investigate and express the best aspects of our shared humanity.  

“The Huntington is something we in the San Gabriel Valley should be very proud of,” says Shulman, “Aside from becoming the stewards of  California’s social history DNA for scholars, on the public side we can help immerse students, teachers, and casual visitors in the beauty of nature, art, and humanities. We can offer many fine examples of what makes life worth living.”

His own history is intertwined in the story.  “I came to The Huntington as a 12 year-old volunteer with a dream — to have a chance to someday make a difference in this special place.”  He joined the staff full time in 1999 and assumed his current role in 2009. Annually, he teaches a class entitled: Huntington 101 that helps to explain the international significance of the research being done at The Huntington. 

Randy is a graduate of San Marino Schools, Pasadena City College, Cal Poly Pomona, and USC, where he earned an MPA in Public Administration.  He has also been involved on the Board of Union Station Homeless Services, where he was the Board Chair.  Randy and his wife Mona reside in Pasadena.
