Sarah Baker Munro

Sarah Baker Munro is past president of the board of Friends of Timberline Lodge (where she learned to ski as a child), and has been voted the historian of Timberline Lodge by Friends of Timberline.

Sarah received her bachelor's degree in art history and anthropology at Pitzer College in Claremont, California, and her master's degree in folklore at the University of California, Berkeley. Her interest in Timberline was renewed in 1975, after the nonprofit Friends of Timberline was formed to support restoration and preservation efforts.

As a member of a committee of volunteers from the Junior League, she learned about and met with original builders, artists, and craftspeople, most of whom are now deceased. The result of that research was a catalog published in 1978 that she coauthored with retired Portland Art Museum curator Rachael Griffin. Sarah has revised and updated the guidebook to the lodge through several editions.

She has appeared on several public broadcasting television segments related to lodges in the Pacific Northwest and Timberline specifically.

In her free time Sarah enjoys art history, reading, tennis, and walking.
