Jon Crispin's Notebook


Posted in Willard Suitcases by joncrispin on 24/02/2013

On Thursday Peggy came over to help me edit for the Exploratorium exhibit.  We had a very productive day and nailed down our final choices.  I started printing yesterday morning and have worked pretty steadily until a few minutes ago.  I still have some that I will probably reprint tomorrow, but for all intents and purposes I am done for now.  All my prints are 12 inches wide, and my great friend Alex Ross has been printing the seven or eight 36 inch wide prints.  It feels great to be so close to putting everything into a giant fedex box and sending them to San Francisco.

    It will be a great show. Since I am so far away from SF, I have friends that will be attending and reporting back.
    If you are showing in France, let me know. 🙂
    Best wishes on the show.

    Jon, just to ask that you spell Exploratorium correctly! We love that you are featuring your exhibition here. But we noticed for instance, that the slate piece has the museum name spelled wrong. It may be that it was their error, but thought we’d reach out to you as well, just in case its the source material!

    Thank you. Linda Dackman, Public Info Director, Exploratorium

    As as genealogist, I was fascinated by the story of this project. Are there any plans to track down living descendants/relatives of the original owners of the items? Perhaps I missed finding the answer somewhere else. In our field, there are genealogists who try to trace forward rather than backwards in an attempt to reunite families with lost memorabilia.

      HIIPA laws make it almost impossible to connect with descendants of patients in the New York State system. It is sad really. Thanks for your interest. Jon
