The donation to the museum is dated March 1966 and is marked to be in memory of Frances (Mrs E B) Eakle and her mother Hattie (Mrs B F) Eakle.The donors are listed as Mr & Mrs R E Dobkins of Henderson KY and the form is signed by R E Dobkins and Dorothy Walton.
The museum holds about 40 items from the donation.There are quite a few items marked "Auction" - a very popular fund-raising activity that the museum used for several years.Others aresimply marked "Removed from Inventory" so I don't know what happened to them.
