Another Reason to Call First

I’ll be passing through Lincoln, Nebraska, on the way home from Salt Lake City later this month.

Lincoln is the home to the State Historical Society of Nebraska. Based upon my travel schedule, I could have stopped for one day (Friday) in Lincoln. I could have easily gotten to the library to view the collection of personal papers of William Ehmen that were mentioned in an earlier post.

It is a good thing that ended up not being my plan. When I emailed the archives to make a copy request, I was told that the papers were not in their correct spot and would have to be located. I have no doubt they are in the historical society–just not where they were supposed to be.

Good thing I didn’t drop in unannounced on a Friday.

Stopping without doublechecking is not advised.
