I second Roger. These are wonderful articles, and Joan and Colleen will be very sorely missed. I'm holding my breath about the future of the James O. Hall Research Center.

Me too. I've learned so much from Joan's research/writing.

Good timing, Wes. The May/June 2022 Surratt Courier should be posted next week at: https://www.surrattmuseum.org/surratt-courier . We had hoped to get the issue out earlier, but life had other plans. We miss Laurie...

RE: The Surratt Courier
Louise Oertly, the intrepid editor of the Courier, takes a closer look at the Booth family, other than JW and Edwin, in the May/June 2022 issue. It is quite interesting.

RE: The Surratt Courier
I love it - I have always wanted a compact but complete summary on all the Booths. Well done.

RE: The Surratt Courier
From what I've only quickly looked through, I'll be printing this issue and storing it in my copy of Hartranft's Letterbook and one of my books about Booth. Can hardly wait till I come home from work tonite to read it.

Being what some people might call a "History Nerd" has it's benefits.
It's fun to see a spark of interest in someone's eyes when you can share some of these historic details about famous people and places they are only vaguely familiar with.

Bill, please pass along our appreciation to those at the Surratt House who help keep our history alive. Their efforts do not go unnoticed.

So when is this "Old Enough To Know Better" supposed to kick in?

Gene - All the credit goes to Louise Oertly, the President of the Surratt Society and the editor of The Surratt Courier, which is published bimonthly by the Surratt Society. The Surratt Society is a separate entity from the Surratt House Museum, but in the past, the two maintained a mutual affiliation. Unfortunately, the Commission that owns and operates the Surratt House Museum has instructed the SHM staff that they are not to engage in activities on behalf of the Surratt Society.

Thanks for posting Bill.

With all the activities of daily life, and my stack of reading material, I forget to go on line to the Surratt Museum to read the Courier.

I think we all long for the days when the yellow pages of the Courier arrived in our mailbox on a monthly basis, but the Commission has made it clear that those days are over. But thanks to the leadership of Louise Oertly, we will continue to make what we hope are interesting issues available online.
