For Laura Skandera Trombley, the Pitzer College president who was named Tuesday as the next president of the Huntington Library, Art Collection and Botanical Gardens, it won’t be just a new job but a more visible platform for pursuing the most important theme in her career and for the Huntington’s mission: persuading people living at a time when tech is king that the humanities remain indispensable.

Trombley, who’ll take over from longtime president Steven Koblik on July 1, 2015, said her portfolio will include not just overseeing what goes on at the Huntington, which occupies a 207-acre estate in San Marino.
