Many people believe that those who work in archives and museums are boring eccentrics. However, this is definitely not true as demonstrated by this photograph of Morris Flewwelling, former director of the Red Deer and District Museum, riding a sawhorse in his office. Most archivists and museum staff are lively and knowledgeable people, willing to share the wealth of interesting information and material from their collections. The City of Red Deer Archives is no exception. Its 250 square metres of historical documents and thousands of old photographs are accessible to interested researchers every weekday and by appointment on weekends.

By the way, Morris had a real horse slip and fall on him on September 12th. While somewhat hobbled, he is recovering nicely.
