A big "THANK YOU"  to Bill Knepp for bringing the collection to the History Center.  This collection was put together by David Rees who was a graduate of Madison Heights.  He served in the Viet Nam war as an Air Force photographer.  When he returned from the service, Mr. Rees worked at and finally retired from Delco Remy.

This is a fabulous and awesome collection of very important cameras.  You need to see it.  See that you bring the family and friends.  See you there!   

The exhibit is  free to everyone in the community.  It is for you and your family;  that's why we do it!  Group times are available by request.  For more information and/or questions, please call us at (765) 683-0052 during public hours.  Thank you!
