Bob White, Supercollector

Bill shared this video about his late brother, Bob. Both of the White boys have a collector's soul. Bill, when do we get to film your basement?

Here are the program notes from the 2004 Maryland Film Festival where it screened:A short tribute to Baltimoreon Robert White--one of the most remarkable collectors of all-time--famous for his collections of shrunken heads, famous hair locks, even Hollywood Oscars, not to mention the greatest private collection of JFK memorabilia ever assembled. He passed away suddenly at 54. He was a gracious and friendly man, and this short reel from a March 1994 visit is but a small testament to his grand vision.
