Paul Mayer of The Field Museum of Chicago will speak at the Grundy County Historical Society monthly meeting. He will talk about the Tulley Monster, our state fossil, as well as the specimens being loaned to the Grundy County Historical Society and Museum. Paul is Collection Manager III, Gantz Family Collection Center, Collection Management, Paleontology, and is responsible for two million fossil specimens. The Field Museum is loaning our Museum a number of the Mazon fossils donated to it by Grundy County residents, specifically Mr. Frank Green and Judge George Bedford. It has been decided that the specimens the museum will loan to us are to be fauna as we have many fine flora specimens already on view. We expect the fossils will come into our Museum shortly after April 25 and will be here for a one year loan. The program will be on Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. and will be held at the Morris Library, 606 N. Liberty, Morris, IL. For questions please call 815-942-4880. Reservations are not necessary and the event is free.
