WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES
by Virginia Scott

MUSEUM HAPPENINGS

Here we are at the third week of the new year and already behind with deadlines for state County Historical Committee reports due, annual reports to our board, calendars, and other projects new and old needing attention. It promises to be another productive year.

The art work of our local students is slowly coming in. This years exhibit is voluntarily on the part of the students and each piece will be judged and prizes awarded. So students get that art work submitted. Stay tuned for more details.

Unfortunately, Lipscomb lost another of our citizen. Betty Beard died with her graveside services on Wednesday in the Lipscomb Cemetery. Betty was one of the first people to start teaching me the history and heritage of the county when I first moved here. She was a wealth of information and loved Lipscomb. She served on the Historical Commission for many years. She will be remembered for her contributions.

HISTORICAL MUSINGS

We receive requests for information about numerous subjects on an almost daily basis. Rarely, do we ever get to see the end product. This year we were blessed with the Dust Bowl series by Ken Burns and today in the mail we received another gift. A two volume set of books entitled "The World War II Fallen of Texas" by Alfred Evans. A veteran who wished to remain nameless donated the set to us for providing our Lipscomb County information to them for the book. The book has over 22,000 names of Texas soldiers who died during World War II. It will be a wonderful addition to our exhibit.

The volumes can be ordered from Alfred Evans, PO Box 242, Comanche, TX 76442 for $99.95.

The books won 2nd place in the TSGS book awards and will be a great reference for generations ahead and genealogists now and the future.
