Fox 5 Washington D.C. Reporter Holly Morris Visits NPM
The National Postal Museum took center stage this morning on Fox 5 DC. First, Chief Curator of Philately Cheryl Ganz gave reporter Holly Morris a tour of the museum’s newest exhibit, Delivering Hope: FDR & Stamps of the Great Depression. At the end, Holly picked out some stamps to start her own collection!
In a second segment, NPM Public Programs Coordinator Erin Blasco explored our Mail By Rail exhibit with Holly trying to beat the clock in our mail sorting activity. Though she did not get all the mail sorted, it was a valiant effort for a first time Rail By Mail clerk.
A third segment featured Education Director Allison Wickens giving Holly a tour of the interactives in the Ford Education Center. Holly created her own virtual stamp collection and e-mailed it to herself. (She's now a philatelist!) Allison also demonstrated the museum's online collection and talked about the museum's Women on Stamps online exhibit.
