To Join Us

 

Bob has been busy with a full plate of horology projects during the past months. Rather than focus on just one for our January webinar, we will enjoy a quick fast-paced illustrated report on four. “Horology in Photography” was a talk Bob gave to the Daguerreian Society, telling those avid collectors of vintage photography about the many connections between photography and timekeeping, right from the first days of Daguerre and Fox Talbot. “Horology 1776” was the 2021 NAWCC symposium that Bob created and organized. More than a hundred attendees gathered in Philadelphia in October to hear eighteen (!) presentations about timekeeping around the time of the American Revolution. Bob will provide some highlights including the special surprise guest at the closing banquet. “Horology at Skinner” will summarize Bob’s recent published article about the auction sale of David Newsom’s amazing collection of watches and clocks. David was a low-key but extremely generous donor for horological causes, and he deserves more recognition after his unexpected passing early in 2020. And finally, “Horology in Art” remains an active decades-long passion of Bob’s. He recently installed at the Horological Society of New York an exhibit of more than sixty important artworks which include a clock or watch in the image. Bob will discuss some stars of this show, and he hopes that Chapter members will make in-person visits to the unique exhibit now on display in mid-town Manhattan.
