FALL EDUCATIONAL SYMPOSIUM
September 23, Wadsworth Atheneum, Hartford Ct. Save this date! We have another great day planned at one of New England's premier museums. In addition to special horology-related guided tours by museum curators, two important morning lectures will be offered. David Wood, Curator of the Concord Museum in Concord Mass., will expand on his article featured in the May, 2000 issue of the magazine ANTIQUES concerning pre-1813 Concord clockmakers. Thomas Dennenberg, Decorative Arts Curator at the Atheneum, is a national expert on Wallace Nutting and will speak on Nutting's special work and publications on clocks. This event is co-sponsored by the Atheneum's Decorative Arts Council, providing us with the opportunity to meet other interesting and serious collectors in the Hartford area. See the next meeting notice for registration details.
Well, the year is passing fast -it's almost summer again and I wonder where the time has gone. With the exception of the August picnic, we are booked into the Sturbridge Host through 2001. For a chapter as large as ours, both in size and geographical area, it makes good sense at this time to stay with a central location. Sturbridge seems to be always well attended, and is the best location we know of for most of our members as opposed to a floating location. If any member feels that they have knowledge of a better location than Sturbridge, -price, location and space, We certainly are open to change. As always, feel free to call me (781-828-1626) with any input or problems. Needless to say, we are still looking for volunteers to help run our chapter.
Looking forward to seeing you at the meeting.
Special Meeting Exhibit
Chapter member Joe Delaney will put together an exhibit of Jefferson Electric clocks for this Chapter meeting. Be sure to stop by.
