I am 94 years old and have been working on all kinds of clocks since I was 15. I have been a member of the NAWCC since 1975. Although I am a maintenance engineer (clock repairman), I have not had any interest in collecting. Most of the clocks I repair are run-of-the-mill, everyday clocks that include some wooden works, French, kitchen, and occasionally an outstanding model. In some cases I have to make parts because replacements are unobtainable.
The NAWCC has been helpful to me when I’ve needed information related to foreign-made clocks such as those from Korea and Germany. I don’t think there is any other place in the United States with the research capabilities that the NAWCC has. To keep an organization operating and continuing to offer research information, donations of all sizes are required.
I consistently donate to the NAWCC to make sure a good source of information is available to the watch and clock community. The Watch & Clock Bulletin and the Mart & Highlights are both well done and provide all kinds of information for any repairman or collector. Many of the authors are retired engineers, and the above material illustrates the intricate work they have done as amateurs and professionals.
I have been a trustee of a family charitable foundation and currently work with our local public foundation. We continue to promote the idea of growing and sharing some of a person’s wealth with charitable causes. The NAWCC is a worthy charitable cause.
