A little Press for Public History

Keeping the goings on of the local museum in the press can be quite difficult, especially when a lot of folks don’t realize that the news from the past is often also the news from the present.  I’ve learned if I want to promote history I have to get out there and do it. What I find is press releases work well, especially if your hometown paper is looking to fill a little space.  After our great success at the Casper home show last weekend where we raised a staggering $2,000, it seemed a good idea to send out a press release to show that a lot of folks are beginning to support our humble little museum. As the museum grows in professionalism and collection standards so it seems does the support.
