I admire collections and the people who choose to become the caretakers. A collection gathers enough of something to offer a full picture of an aesthetic that appeals to the collector.

My childhood friend Joey Cooper collected New York City bus transfers. As a fourth-grader, he rode buses throughout the city to acquire transfers. He created albums of his bus transfers, carefully mounting them like butterflies or postage stamps gathered from far continents. I wasn’t allowed to touch them.

As an adult, I was thrilled to visit a history office and put on white gloves to look through an archival box of rare blue-tone photographs taken by 19th-century cartographer Henry Peter Bosse. His historic landscape photos chronicled the transformation of the Mississippi River in the late 1800s. Now the public can view reproductions of those images collected in the Minnesota Digital Library.
