Come to think of it, Richard Schellen was a like a “human database”, databasing before computers were doing it for us. Just think what Schellen could have done with a computer.
I don’t know for certain if the Richard Schellen Collection is accessible online, but wouldn’t it be nice if it were? What a terrific project for someone to underwrite–and make available to anyone through the library or the county history museum. That would be the greatest tribute to Mr. Schellen.
