No one likes a braggart and frankly few people really are braggarts. Nevertheless, as the museum's volunteer coordinator, I had access to so many wonderful people and decided to start interviewing them. And boy do they have stories! Discover how the museum began in earnest through the work and contributions of Margaret Dunning, currently active and driving yearly in the Woodward Dream Cruise, at 102 years of age. Find out how she stepped in, the second time, to add to the building, making it 26,000 square feet. It is currently the largest museum in Michigan, for a small city. Learn how William Clay Ford was so inspired by the Abraham Lincoln and the Lincoln car combination that he too stepped in with a $50,000 donation, so that the museum could purchase the renowned Lincoln collection of Dr. Weldon Petz, a well known collector. This led to the need for an addition. Meet Ralph Moote, the facility manager, and learn his experiences with ghosts and our radio station. Meet the other guys who currently man it as well. Hear several stories of other maintenance personnel. Find out the procedure that Pam Yockey, well known seamstress of period clothing, undertook to make the outfit of Mary Todd Lincoln completely accurate. She actually talked to everyone in the United States who was a Lincoln expert. Examine all the steps that Donna Keough and crew undertake to make each exhibit picture perfect, always adding significant detail.
