The DuBois Area Historical Society’s first president Dr. John Furlow and wife, Judy, also a former officer, attended the 30th Anniversary dinner in September and visited the E. D. Reitz Museum for their first time the next day. “I believe we used to meet on the street corner,” joked John after touring the museum, “I am really impressed with the displays.” Dr. Furlow served as the Society’s first president in 1982 when he was a faculty member and taught Pennsylvania history at Penn State DuBois. The Furlow’s relocated to Lancaster, Ohio, where John served as dean at Ohio University-Lancaster campus.
