Dr. Alan Shotwell

We lost a good friend and long-time supporter on May 19th. Dr. Shotwell gave generously of his time and talents for the betterment of this Museum. We have missed his presence over the last year. In his honor, we will commemorate his artistry in the Native American Exhibit area with a plaque in the near future.

Alan's sense of humor was always a delight. He had us pose as historic era people using cell phones & searching for bars.
