Exhibitionism

The Tri-County Historical Society, which was extremely helpful to me in researching and writing the Red Faber biography, hopes to improve the Faber section of its museum in Cascade.

On Wednesday evening, I met with Lee Simon, a board member and baseball afficianado, to kick around ideas for a fresher exhibit. There are challenges.

Challenge 1: The historical society and I have a great deal of information and many photographs -- no problem there -- but the museum lacks much in the way of memorabilia and bona fide Faber items.

Challenge 2: Lee is not a museum curator. Nor am I. We need professional help. We need someone who could suggest how the historical society might improve its exhibit. Our search has begun.
