Fred's artifacts are going to be up for auction in Temple 2011?

My dear friend Fred(from the home page friends collection) decided to let go of his collection, after nearly 80 years of amassing. If you've never viewed, it's awesome, by far the largest collection i've ever seen. Some of his indian collection recently sold at Heritage auctions in New York. I've been told that his points are going to be put up for auction here in Texas next year? If anyone connected to the Temple show has any info, i'd be interested in knowing more.

Thanks Bill, do you know if it's going to be at one of the shows, that's what his wife told me? I talked to him a couple of days upon them boxing and shipping his collection off, it was taking it's toll on him, letting a lifetime of memories go. I didn't want to drag it out anymore than i had to. Did you ever have a chance to view his collection in person, i know Dwain has?

"Boxing and shipping his collection off" Dam, cant take it with you but we would think it would be nice to
just hold onto it til they throw the first shovel of dirt

The same people from New York picked up all of
it including the flint. I never saw the collection but would have loved to. From what Dwain said it was unreal. He said he would look at it years ago about once a week.
