The Air We Breathe
PAULETTE MIDDLETON
THURSDAY, APRIL 4, 1991

As part of our series on the environment, the Marian
Miner Cook Athenaeum is proud to welcome
Paulette Middleton. Dr. Middleton received her B.A.,
M.A., and Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Texas
at Austin. She is using her technical knowledge to study
air quality issues such as acid rain, visibility degradation, and air pollution. Dr. Middleton also works to
ensure that environmental, energy, and economic
policies are designed to deal with specific air quality
issues in the U.S. and around the world.

with the Atmospheric Sciences Research Center, where
she helped to develop a computer model for studying
regional air quality issues. In addition, she played a
major role in the study of the Denver Brown Cloud and

protection program. Currently, Dr. Middleton is a
project director for the Denver Air Quality Modeling
Study, a major technical and policy-related study of
urban visibility.

Dr. Middleton feels that for us to properly assess our
impact on the environment, it is important to understand the relationships among the different aspects of
the human-environment system as well as the components themselves.

Dinner Theater
The Mousetrap by Agatha Christie
Thursday, April 11, 1991-Sunday, April 14, 1991

"Three blind mice, three blind mice. See how they run,
see how they run. They all ran after the farmer's wife..."

Under the Lights, who brought Arsenic and Old Lace (1952) and You Can't Take It With You (1936) to the Athenaeum, is
now pleased to invite you to get caught in The Mousetrap (1952), Agatha Christie's tale of murder, mayhem, and
madcap hilarity. Join the guests at snowed-in Monkswell Manor as the persistent Sergeant Trotter
encounters a diverse array of the eccentric and the abnormal as he attempts to glean the truth and expose
the perpetrator of two murders. Motive can be misleading-who is guilty? Is it the forward and macho
Paravicini, or is it the straight-laced and reserved Giles? Perhaps it is the severe Miss Casewell, or maybe the
level-headed Mollie, the least likely of criminals? Please join the cast and crew of The Mousetrap (1952) at the
Athenaeum on April 11, 12, and 13 for dinner, or April 14 for brunch.
