NOTE:  While clearing out Gene Slagle's office at 463 E. Center in Marion, Ohio and Gene and Emily's home, we discovered
many pictures, letters and other collectibles.  Included was 21 shirt sized boxes full of letters, newspaper clippings and pictures. 
Emily was going to put these 21 boxes of materials in scrapbooks but developed macular degeneration.  Nelson took on the task
of sifting through all of the 21 boxes in 2006-7 and the materials are now in 13 scrapbooks.  That includes five folders of letters,
5 scrapbook notebooks and 3 albums of pictures.  The large pictures, books, auction catalogs, certificates, old deeds, and other
items of interest are now displayed in a one bedroom converted museum.  The closest was converted into one huge bookcase. 
Below are pictures of the collection. 

The Museum was dismantled in the Spring of 2016 and items are now stored throughout
the house.
NOTE:  Only a few pictures below are visible.  To see each of the other pictures just click on the description of the picture.
