Tom Glass

Thank you Tom for assisting at last weekend’s “Dating Old Photos” talk given to the Willamette Valley Genealogical Society at the State Library. Attendance was very good and I hope everyone had a little fun and learned some facts to help them better establish the date of an old photo.

Tom has an extensive collection of Buffalo Bill images and also a huge collection of Civil War generals of the Union Army. He is busy finishing a book about these generals that will include their picture and a short biography.

In this picture of Tom he is holding an ambrotype of a soldier drummer. It had unusual clarity and in fine condition, it just needed the hinge to be glued and tightened. That’s going to cost you lunch, Tom!
