Behind-the-Scenes: "So You Want to be an Aviation Historian?" with Museum Senior Curator Dan Hagedorn
Saturday, March 31 | Presentations at 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
"What's Next?" That is the question posed by Museum of Flight Senior Curator Dan Hagedorn to anyone who has amassed a private collection of aeronautica. Speaking from the point of view of an enthusiast who became a photographer, collector and author, Hagedorn will remind audience members that completing the mosaic of the first century of flight may involve your own unique contributions, and that organizing them and planning for their disosition when the inevitable day arrives requires deliberate action. He combines his 27-year military intelligence experiences with 20 years on staff at the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum to illustrate that our aviation heritage belongs to all of us, and that no contribution is too small to be documented and preserved. Seating is limited to 35 Members per presentation. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 206.768.7221. Program is for Museum Members only (no guest passes please.)
