General Clarence R. Huebner item


Recommended Posts

Neat item. Looks like a plate a museum had made to help with a display of his items.

DITO Good question, I wonder if it came from the Cantigny Museum outside of Chicago. I hope the grouping is still on display and not been deacquisition or deaccession and now is in a private collection.

I am not saying this happened, just some thought from the cheap seats.

A lot of his stuff is up for auction next week. You donate stuff to museums at your own peril. They can and do sell it whenever they need cash. Many vets think that when they donate their stuff that it will be protected for posterity and that is often times not the case.

What did the museum have on display?

 

That would be the Cantigny 1st division museum in Wheaton Illinois.

On the grounds of the former home of Colonel Robert McCormack... the owner of the Chicago Tribune.

The Colonel was with the division in WW1.

His mansion is on the grounds and he and his wife are buried there.

They rebuilt the museum, expanded it...... im going to guess over 20 years ago now.

Im guessing maybe it was removed from there at that time?
