I'm a docent, and was called in to give tours to the attendees - my tour folks all turned out to be NALC union carriers who'd gone out on strike in '70. The "kid" in the group was 67.

I encouraged them to record their stories in our oral history program, and was gratified to see several of them do this.

These guys absolutely *loved* the museum, and I don't think they'd known about us before. Several of the guys said they're coming back with family.

This is a group I don't think we've served as well as we could have.
