Karla Klein Albertson began her journalism career with an eye on antiquities, receiving her M.A. in Classical Archaeology from Bryn Mawr College and honing her research skills in museum storerooms.
Albertson has written the Antiques column for the Home and Design section of The Inquirer since 1996. She also contributes regularly to the Maine Antique Digest, Early American Life, and other collecting publications and home magazines.
She continues to travel widely, most recently in favorite countries England and Italy. Her off-hours pursuits are tai chi, music, and – of course – collecting.
