PardonPower took its dog and pony show to St. Louis, Missouri, this past weekend, to do some filming for an upcoming episode of the ever-popular History Detectives. The area was quite beautiful and the folks that I met up with there were focused, but fun to work with. The interview was conducted in the main study area of the Missouri History Museum Library (a very beautiful building with fantastic resources) by 'History Detective' Tukufu Zuberi, a sociologist with the University of Pennsylvania. While visiting in the area, we also took the time to stop by the Campbell House Museum. My grandfather (Col. John Hamilton Ruckman) and his sister (Marjorie Campbell Ruckman) were great-great-grandchildren of Hazlett and Catherine Campbell. I guess that makes me a great-great-great-great-grandchild. The Campbell House was truly amazing, and the guides are friendly, enthusiastic about their work and informative. It is a must-see for visitors to the area. When the History Detectives episode is scheduled to air, PardonPower will make an announcement. It should be interesting.
