Re: Who writes titles and captions for these photos?
Sadly it’s not just at museums and libraries. Here in Wichita Falls the city caught wind of free Federal money if we had a depot or historical district. So they hired an outside consultant to help with the history.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
What they came up with was:
1. The Wichita Valley was one of the Kemp & Kell Railroads
2. Our Union Station was the “Union Pacific depot”
3. The Route Building was the Kemp & Kell depot
All 3 points were terribly incorrect and as the museum director at the WFRRM at the time I tried to get the information corrected.
Unfortunately all this did was put a great big target on me and the others in the museum at the time.
The apple was submitted, chalked full of mistakes and misstatements and the money began to flow in.
Sad to think that tons of incorrect facts are now part of the official record.
