The author of The Collecting Gene blogged about the Jim Crow Museum at Ferris State University. Dana Graves writes, " I first learned about this remarkable, offensive, & worthwhile collection when I read how the collection was compiled."
David Pilgrim, now curator of the museum, was the primary collector:
"Today, I am the founder and curator of the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia at Ferris State University. Most collectors are soothed by their collections; I hated mine and was relieved to get it out of my home. I donated my entire collection to the university, with the condition that the objects would be displayed and preserved. I never liked having the objects in my home."
