    Hats off to the staff members in Collections for blending my ramblings into an interesting podcast. I have been impressed from day-one with each and every person involved in the process of acquiring and documenting my collection. I sincerely hope the collection and the Mill City Museum venue will inspire further study of the flour milling industry of Minnesota and the Great Northwest.

    Richard has helped me, a fledgling flour milling collector, with my collecting. It is great that the Mill City Museum is using his great stuff.
