Re: [midatlanticretro] The men behind the rescues
TCF's Sol Libes sent Andy and I a picture of Tom Kirk from 1976. Tom
died recently; it's his house and collection that Jeff J. and I have
been sorting and rescuing these past few weeks. Nice to see the person
behind the story. At TCF this weekend, several people told us that Tom
(and also Neil Otto, who also recently died and whose collection we also
saved) both would've been proud of what we are doing.
The teletype always made for a good foot rest for me too :)
That should be framed and hung on the wall there.
I envision all of our exhibits (eventually) having their walls full of cultural imagery -- pictures, posters, t-shirts, banners, advertisements, sales literature, etc. -- I don't think this will be done in time for VCF East but it's a good start. We already have an Atlantic City '76 poster in there (thanks to Bill Deg.), along with a WarGames poster waiting to be hung (thanks to Chris L.), AC '76 picture of SWTP booth with their team wearing "Altair Sucks" shirts (thanks to Michael Holley), etc.
