Neighborhood Stories: Michael Kraus: Collector and Curator


Everyone should be as fortunate as I was on a bright blue February day to take a leisurely walk with Michael Kraus through Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall and Museum. Michael is the curator of the museum and knows the details of every exhibit. He is familiar with each of the uniformed figures in the glass cases, standing eternally at attention among the yellowed handwritten proclamations and the faded ribbons. Michael has created many of the exhibits and tends the others with care.
