Notes and news about the exhibit, the Wallaces, their world, and the people who worked for them and their company. We plan to keep posting here as long as we have visitors. Enjoy our blog, leave your comments before you go, and come again. Information about the curators is available here.

The volunteer exhibit committee at the New Castle Historical Society usually sets aside a couple of weeks just before a show is mounted to assemble an exhibit’s panels, cutting and pasting the text and photos onto cardboard in a pleasing manner.
For the Reader’s Digest exhibit, we had a secret weapon to take us into the 21st century: Lyle Anderson. As his curator bio tells, Lyle’s long career has been in information technology, most recently as a management consultant in technology planning and internet development. This description hardly does Lyle, a modern-day Renaissance man justice, however. Lyle is also an avid photographer and often exhibits in the New York and Rhode Island areas, plus he has a thriving website design and development business on the side, including the impressively comprehensive sites for the town of New Castle and Chappaqua Library, among others. To be honest I don’t know what else Lyle does (he has admitted to getting an early version of the iPad from his friend Steve, yes, that Steve), but safe to say whatever it is, it’s impressive.
