Collecting in Missouri

March 19 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Join the Cass County Historical Society in welcoming Dr. Madeline Rislow from Kansas City’s own National Museum of Toys and Miniatures.
In 1982, Mary Harris Francis [L] (1927-2005) and Barbara Hall Marshall [R] (1923-2021) combined their respective passions for historic toys and fine-scale miniature art to form a museum near Kansas City’s Country Club Plaza. A broad array of toys—the largest number on public display in the nation— serves as a catalyst for conversation reflecting on the connections between past and present. Rislow will delve into what it means to “collect” in Missouri. Using the backdrop of T/m, the presentation will explore how we all share stories and create memories through the process of collecting. The presentation will include highlights from the broader T/m collection.
