Jon Crispin's Notebook

Willard Suitcases / Charles F. / Update

Willard Suitcases Project

I’ve been busy with the Hope and Feathers exhibit and quite busy with my freelance work, but the suitcases project is never far from my mind.

I am working on an interesting collaboration on Charles’ cases and hope to have some exciting news soon.

He had an interesting collection of ties.

There are quite a few Penny postcards in the collection as well as some interesting hand- written notes.  You can see the New York State Museum’s catalogue number (in pencil) on the upper right side of the white paper.

Thank you all for following this project.  I will be devoting a ton of time to the suitcases later this month as I continue to develop ideas for getting the photos out to a wide audience.  And Peter Carroll, Deb Hoard, and I are beginning to work hard on a preliminary short film which we can send to funders for the larger documentary that we plan to produce.

    Dear Jon, Woo-who! Wow, that’s great news. I really loved the original suitcase project. It’s one of the most interesting things I’ve ever seen. Thanks for sharing this with me. I’ll be looking forward to seeing this. Lots of success on your current program. Take care.

    All the best, Martha

    How I would love to be locked in with those cases and let them tell me their stories…
