Wolcott museum’s guild to host local historian


Jim Bowsher will have give the final presentation in the 2013 Wolcott House Museum Guild Lecture Series at 10 a.m. Thursday in the Maumee Branch Library auditorium.

Mr. Bowsher brings artifacts and pictures for his lecture, each one reminding him of a story he has researched. He visits nursing homes to gather stories, and volunteers at a local prison to talk with the inmates about their lives. His archaeological, historical, and ancient finds are included in his stories.

Judy Justus, president of the Wolcott House Museum Guild, described him as the “historical senior Energizer Bunny.”

The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served afterward.
