Check your attic
Do you have any photos or memorabilia pertaining to Glenwood Cemetery?
If so, the Glenwood Cemetery Historic Preservation Foundation might want to have a word with you.
The foundation recently commissioned a book on the history of Houston's historic cemetery. An author has already been chosen and the book is expected to be published by fall 2008.
"We are seeking historic photographs, diaries, letters, programs, catalogues, deeds, maps, receipts, documents and ANY other memorabilia that depict or mention Glenwood Cemetery and its grounds, monuments and statuary, including sculptors, architects and landscape architects whose work is represented here," according to a foundation e-mail recently forwarded to me by Houston Arts and Media.
For more information, contact the cemetery at 713-864-7886.
