Topinka articles being sent to museum
I am writing to let you know that I am sending the Dec. 17 and Dec. 24 issues of the Landmark to the National Czech and Slovak Museum and Library in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I want to make sure they have the articles and pictures of Judy Baar Topinka.
The National Czech and Slovak Museum and Library is interested in preserving the history of the Czechoslovakian people, including those in our country. I noticed in one of your Landmark articles it mentions her parents came from Czechoslovakia. I am not surprised, because of her characterizations of being thrifty, honest, being direct, etc. I believe those are qualities of the old Czech heritage.
Ms. Judy Baar Topinka is definitely a person the Museum and Library should be proud to include in their collections.
