Franklin Mineral Show Booklets



Few documents related to our club have as long a history as the show programs printed for the Fall Franklin mineral show, in early years called the "Franklin-Sterling Hill Mineral Exhibit," and after 1991 the "Franklin-Sterling Hill Gem and Mineral Show." According to Dick Bostwick, "the two-page program handed out at the First Annual Mineralogy Exhibit of the Franklin Kiwanis Club, in October of 1957, included a fluorescent mineral check-list with 25 entries." The full list of Franklin minerals was prepared by Jack Baum, with help from Pete Dunn, names familiar to all Franklin mineral collectors. The list has grown quite a bit, carefully curated by Dick Bostwick and the mineral list committee, and we have scanned the programs that we could find to preserve them here. They provide an excellent record of the growth of our understanding of Franklin-Sterling Hill and the minerals found here. The advertisements found in the early programs are a hoot, too.
