I wanted to continue my discussion about the Board of Directors. I’m not sure if you all know us and what we do or not–so here goes – not in any particular order (well, yes, there was a particular order–the order I took the pics!):
The first picture is Tom Collins, our President, who works for Capital Area Transit in Harrisburg. He is retired from SEPTA in Philadephia. He is standing next to Oliver Ogden. They are both at the Annex prior to the meeting on Tuesday. Oliver is retired–has had an interest in buses all his life (in fact his mother noted in his baby book that “bus” was his first word). Although he only worked for Hempstead Bus as a young man and persued other avenues later on in life–he has ALWAYS loved buses. He recently authored a book “Fifth Avenue Coach Company” which I wrote about in an earlier blog….it will be published by Iconografx in October of this year.

The second picture shows John Dockendorf, Secretary of the Board, seated at the table and Tom Mozer, standing behind him. Also note Tom Collins standing to the left with his head down. John, an employee of Penn DOT, collects toy buses and has written a book on Greyhound Postcards (which I wrote about in a previous blog–GREYHOUND in POSTCARDS – Buses, Depots and Post Houses, Collection of John Dockendorf). Tom Mozer, Assistant Fleet Manager, retired from NJ Transit (Safety and Training Supervisor), is a newlywed and works hard with the Fleet committee–he is always there when buses need to be moved for the Museum.
