With the passing of Lee Paulson, longtime Glenwood English teacher and theater director, many people are sharing their memories in face to face conversations throughout the community and in virtual conversations on-line.
Yesterday, his family gifted a large stack of photo albums and boxes of photos from his collection. There are production and backstage photos from High School and community plays dating back to the 1950s. It is a real treasure for the museum, and we are grateful to his family for sharing them with us.
Sorting and identifying these photos will take a long time, but we encourage his former thespians to come in and help us identify the plays and the actors/crew members depicted in the photos.
All three staff members here at the museum have been involved in theater through the years and are able to identify many of the faces in the images. We enjoyed looking through the images this morning as a stroll down memory lane.
