Our very own Richard Eisenhour will be presenting this program about early Galveston, Texas postcards on Saturday, July 11th from 2:00-3:00. No need to wear a mask, just tune in, sit back, and enjoy! Richard's enthusiasm for his collecting interests are contagious, you will be entertained and inspired as he unmasks his research about his hometown. Not to be missed during this time of limited access to fresh material from our hobby of postcard collecting!
“Galveston promoted itself to the world in picture postcards even before the great 1900 hurricane. In a profusely illustrated Facebook Live Lecture, Galveston native Richard Eisenhour will present new research about the island city’s role in Texas tourist cultural history.
Although he was born and raised on Galveston Island Richard currently resides in Austin, Texas. There he works as a collections manager for the Texas State Preservation Board, assisting the Texas Capitol Curator with the care and handling of the state capitol’s collection of historic furnishings and artwork. Richard received a BA in American Studies from the University of Texas at Austin and an MA in Museum Studies from George Washington University in Washington DC.”
