Two Years of the American Hysterical Society

Today is the second anniversary of the opening of the American Hysterical Society.

None of the staff here at the AHS would have guessed that two years later we would still be collecting, creating, and curating such a wonderful collection. In fact, some of us thought we would have gotten bored with all of this by now.

Please, gifts aren’t necessary. We have everything we want. But if you are hell-bent on doing something for us, and our rabid fan usually is, please share the AHS with anyone you think might find us of value. Remember, membership is free and we come to you. How many other museums can say that?

And remember:

Look for the ridiculous in everything and you will find it. – Jules Renard

“It is our responsibilities, not ourselves, that we should take seriously.” Peter Ustinov


About T.H. Gray

T.H. Gray is the self-appointed court jester and Dr. Demento for the history museum field. A lifelong museum professional and reenactor, he is a graduate of the prestigious Peale-Barnum Public History Museum Studies Program. Until 2011, when the AHS hired him away, he was on staff at the Benjamin Dover Memorial Museum & Swimming Pool ("Our History is All Wet!"). He remembers when museums were still about history, science, and art. BTW, all of these posts say they are by T.H. Gray because he can't turn off the byline. Credit, when due, is given.
