My dad with his model train from childhood
Scottsville Museum, Virginia
April 14, 2007
I really love this photo of my father with the model train he played with as a child. His parents and grandparents worked on the railroad, and then my dad put himself through college and grad school by driving trains at night. The railroad has always been a big part of my father’s life, which is why this model train was his beloved toy.
Dad loaned his train to the Scottsville Museum for their WWII exhibit. I love this moment that I captured of my father with the train. You can see the happy memories on his face.

My dad, a lifetime stamp collector, put together this extraordinary exhibit about the WWII mail system
Me with Professor Charles Fry. Dr. Fry was my professor for two of my undergraduate psychology classes: Adolescent Psychology and Primate Behavior. He ended up being a huge influence on my life, and it’s wonderful to be able to stay in touch with him. He is a board member of the museum, so we see each other at least once a year.
Another nice shot of my dad

You might recognize the poster in the background as one I designed a few weeks ago. People loved it!
