Curated by MCLA intern
Seth Drouin, the new exhibit presents biographical information
on, memorabilia from and pictures of folks born in North Adams
or local residents for some period of time whose claim to fame
resulted from what they did after moving on.
They range from historian-philosopher Will Durant to
humanitarian-physician Paul Farmer.
They include Baseball Hall of Famer Happy Jack Chesbro
and Basketball Hall of Famer Oswald Tower.
Also featured are Rear Admiral Michael Flaherty and Vice
Admiral Allan McCann. Lue
Gim Gong Citrus Wizard is featured on a VHS program.
The exhibit will be displayed
starting in May in
our first floor temporary gallery.
