Mary Landon Darden and the Treasures of the Texas Collection
One of the blessings of my life is to be surrounded by friends who are more talented than I am, and one of those friends is Mary Landon Darden. She's a person of incredible accomplishment, and one of the most effective organizers I know.
Her most recent project is fascinating. She has produced and hosted a 30-minute weekly radio show which tells the stories buried within Baylor's "Texas Collection" of historical artifacts. Every week, a different story is revealed. It's a novel and provocative way to bring up from hiding these wonderful bits of history-- a trick which is typical of Mary.
The show airs at 1:30 on Saturdays and 7 on Sundays on KWBU (103.3-FM) in Waco. Check it out!
