PostPosted: May 25, 2013 08:39    Post subject: Weis Earth Science Museum, Menasha, Wisconsin, USA  

I found myself in Appleton, Wisconsin this morning, preparing to present an award for bicycle friendly business to Kimberly Clark Corporation. Appleton is the home of the late John F. Barlow, a famous mineral collector. I had asked my host to drive me past Barlow's home last night and got a decent night time shot, hoping not to scare the current owners!

After my bicycle presentation and bike ride with 400 Kimberly Clark employees as well as the CEO, I found I had a little bit of time, before flying home to Texas, to go see some of Barlow's pieces in the University of Wisconsin.

We had called ahead and a wonderful fellow, Gary Richards, met us there. Seems he knew who I was and wanted to show me around.

Getting my photos organized and am about to post a few....

I had only half an hour, sadly, so my photos are a bit rushed.

I wish I had more time, Mr. Richards had a fun and witty way of telling stories about the miners and mines, and he was a friend of Mr. Barlows too. Speaking of which, my friend lives right down the road from Barlow's home, when he was still alive and living there....so he drove me by at night, this is the photo I managed to take. Hoping not to scare the current residents!

Thanks for viewing my photos and write up, cheers! Gail Copus Spann

P.S.
I joined the Weis N Miners mineral club while there. I think it's nice to support groups when they are so good at making an effort to keep the stories and fun going!

Also, the address for the Weis Earth Science Museum is
1478 Midway Road
Menasha, Wisconsin, 54952
920-832-2925
920-832-2674 fax
