Jon Crispin's Notebook

Willard Suitcases / Margaret S.

Posted in History, Willard Suitcases by joncrispin on 12/02/2014

We had a very productive day shooting the cases yesterday.  We made it through another box, and it continues to feel like we are making real progress.  For the second week in a row, I was knocked out by a case when I opened it up.  This one had the classic type of latch that makes such a familiar sound when you slide the buttons to release the locks.  And I really liked the design and pleasant shade of grey.

Whoa, what a case!

Margaret S came to Willard on 6 June, 1967 and went to Ward 2 in the Hatch Building.

I have just cleared the $8,000 mark on the Kickstarter appeal, and I am very grateful for the support. We still have a long way to go before we reach our goal so I would really appreciate anything that could be done to spread the word.  Thanks for following.

    This sends a chill up my spine as my first name is Margaret and my Maiden name Schaff! I am fascinated by your project and am following you.
