Herb Hornung

Recently, Herb Hornung of the Wooden Nickel Museum passed away. Only a few months ago we wrote an article about him and his museum.

I found the interview I did with him for the article. He shows his knowledge and enthusiasm on a variety of topics.

It's difficult to imagine that he is gone. He will be missed.

Here is an old youtube video about Herb and the Wooden Nickel Company that gives a sense of his engaging personality.
