    Carter Harris, NAWCC Museum Curator, retiring

    Last week Carter told me he would be retiring at the end of August. That was confirmed today with an announcement at the NAWCC.

    Adam got to know Carter better than me - they shared Carter's office while Adam was in residence. What I saw was a dedicated man with a great depth of knowledge of both horology (particularly clocks) and of the NAWCC museum itself. He started every day by making the rounds of of the grounds, winding the active time pieces. I had intended to accompany him on those rounds on my next visit. I am sorry that won't happen.

    Anybody who will be in Columbia PA this week should make it a point of wishing him well.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Due to ill health, sadly my friend Carter decided to retire early.
    He had a wealth of knowledge in clocks and pocket watches.

    I am using his office alone.

    I miss him being around.

    NEVER ARGUE WITH AN IDIOT. FIRST THEY WILL DRAG YOU DOWN TO THEIR LEVEL. THEN, THEY WILL BEAT YOU WITH EXPERIENCE.
