In case you missed it, Albert Southwick appeared on “Coffee with Konnie” last month. It’s available for viewing at archive.org.

Also, if you missed the chance in December or January to meet Mr. Southwick and have some books signed, he’ll be doing another signing event at the Robert H. Goddard Library at Clark University on Saturday, May 17 from 12:00-2:00 p.m.

Higgins’ armor auction

While fans of historic arms & armor no longer have the Higgins Armory as a Mecca of sorts to see such things on display, some of the Higgins collection can now be seen at the Worcester Art Museum.

Some of the collection, however, will not be staying in Worcester.  If you happen to be visiting London in May and have thousands of dollars burning a hole in your pocket, some of the armor from the collection will be auctioned off by Thomas Del Mar, Ltd., in association with Sotheby’s on May 7th.
