Traditionally each November the WTHS holds our meeting outside of Shelby County. This year we travel to Lauderdale County on Saturday November 1st to explore two locations. Murray Hudson’s ANTIQUARIAN BOOKS, MAPS, PRINTS & GLOBE at 109 S. Church St. and The Veterans’ Museum at 100 Veterans’ Drive, both in Halls, TN. Both venues offer a wonderful day of exploration. Mark your calendars and don’t miss this outing!
Mr. Hudson is the owner of Antique Maps, Historical Books & Prints and Antique Globes. Mr. Hudson began his career as English Professor at Auburn University, but moved to home and family in Dyersburg in 1978. As his vast collection of maps began to overcome his home, he decided to further his passion into a business. While Hudson maintains strong collections of the southeastern and southwestern United States, nearly any type of map can be found in the shop: topographic maps, country and world maps, Pony Express routes, Prohibition maps, Methodist church expansion, even maps showing places that no longer exist. Among the globes are one that depicts the route of Sputnik and some that were used as training for bomber pilots. http://www.murrayhudson.com/
While the Museum honors our veterans from that era with displays, photographs, and history of the base, it also honors all of our veterans with displays from the different wars and conflicts in which the U.S. has been involved. http://www.dyaab.us/
