Wait a minute, isn't that the same job Andy Beckman with a long Studebaker family history and much knowledge of the Museum has?

If so, those would be mighty BIG shoes to fill!

Actually Andy is the Archivist. He has been filling both positions for quite a while after the previous curator resigned.

Andrew IS a pretty good fellow. Its just hard to do two separate jobs like he has been doing.
