The Lamplighter Foundation
Lightlighter Foundation Director
Susan H. Merriweather was a mediocre scientist, but is one of the best foundation administrators in the country. Her unique mix of pragmatism and open-mindedness makes her a valuable asset to the Lamplighters. Many consultants have come back with unbelievable tales, but she takes what is reported to her at face value.
She does not, however, look kindly on those who she sees failing their assignments, and is not above terminating consultant contracts when crossed. Nor does she like what she sees as frivolous expense account uses. Dr. Merriweather expects consultants to turn in itemized records for reimbursement, and it’s not unheard of for her to call a consultant in the middle of the night demanding an explanation for a particular receipt.
