It is too bad most of you do not live near Springfield Massachusetts. I live about an hour away so driving down to see Franks JFK exhibit at the Museum of Springfield History (Lyman and Merrie Wood Museum -- 2nd Floor) is no problem. You are first treated to Franks terrific restoration of a Packard Marine engine which compares favorably to the restored early Rolls Royce cars in another room nearby.

Upstairs, one can see why so many people contribute to Frank's collecting ... as he makes so much of it available to the public and his displays are of first rate museum quality. Kennedy enthusiasts and PT boat enthusiasts will not be disappointed.

There is a photograph of the ten year old Jackie Bouvier who's eyes somehow convince you that she knew she was destined for greatness.

Thanks so much Nat for taking the time to go to the exhibit. I am blushing over your remarks, which as a Historian mean a great deal to me. There is always so much more to learn when doing one of these exhibits, but like you I hope the majority of the folks who visit the exhibit enjoy it.........
