Driving force behind Barton County Historical Society museum dead at 90
Bob Douglas, who revitalized the Barton County Historical Society Museum in the courthouse basement, died Thursday at age 90. I remember all of the help Bob gave me when I wrote the original Truman Pageant in 1984, and how much of his time he was willing to offer when I was researching Lamar history for numerous articles I wrote over the years.
His obituary ran this morning in the Joplin Globe.
