JOINT DIGITAL SECURES GUBERNATORIAL PROCLAMATION
Document Recognizes the Work of Barrington History Museum
Barrington, Illinois, April 1, 2017– In a partnership with the Barrington History Museum, Joint Digital secured a Gubernatorial Proclamation recognizing the work done to further the historical narrative of the State of Illinois.
“The Barrington History Museum has quietly researched and curated the history of northwest Illinois for almost 50 years,” explained Founder and Managing Director of Joint Digital, Matthew Ensenberger. “It is special to be recognized for this dedication and service. It’s really special when Governor Rauner recognizes this contribution to the state of Illinois.”
The proclamation specifically recognizes the work that the Barrington History Museum has done tracing the genealogy of President Gerald Ford to that of the Miller family (of Miller’s Grove). It was read and presented to Michael Harkins, of the Barrington History Museum on Saturday, April 1, 2017 at the history museum’s annual Presidential Lecture Series. This year the series honored President Gerald Ford by hosting a luncheon and presentation by Mr. Donald Hollaway, Curator of the Gerald Ford Presidential Museum and Library.
“Many folks don’t realize the connections between Illinois and Gerald Ford,” said Michael Harkins. “The Museum’s own research and triangulation with the Gerald Ford Presidential Museum and Library tell an interesting story. We are very excited to share this information in a new exhibit at the Barrington History Museum beginning early next year.”
