Winchesters at the Museum

My article about John Goeman's brown-bag presentation at the Smith-Zimmermann Museum is in the Madison Daily Leader. I hope to get over there and hear about Winchesters and their short-lived foray into hardware of all stripes. Best known for their repeater rifles, Winchester built a network of hardware stores in the '20's, but they failed after a decade. Collectors around the world have apparently become enamored of the skates, saws, flashlights, wrenches, knives, forks, toasters, hatchets, and more with the Winchester logo. Check out their membership and store here.
