Leo Krziza, a former
Canal Zone resident and an
early supporter of the museum
project, has made a major offer
to the museum and a challenge
to former Zonians. Leo has
pledged a $25,000 donation to
the museum in memory of his
sister, Esther Condry Krziza.
Leo, an Ocala resident, visited
the museum to determine the
status of the museum and what
contribution could best move
the project forward. A week
after his visit, he sent a note to
the museum offering the
$25,000 donation as a
matching grant to contributions
made by other individuals.
The donation serves as a
solid challenge to his fellow
Zonians to come forward with
individual donations to match
his pledge. This means that
donations received after Leo's
March 24, 2003, offer, will
actually count double for the
Since Leo's offer was
made, museum board members
and other supporters of the
museum have started coming
forward with matching funds.
A bequest of over $13,000 by
former Zonian, Anna Ruth
Werkheiser, was received
recently. Other significant
donations have gotten a good
start to matching the challenge

in the past weeks. Museum
President, Chuck Hummer,
says, "It looks as though the
five years of work since the
museum was founded has
resulted in a credible
operation that now warrants
larger monetary donations to
keep it going. I hope this will
allow us to meet our next two
goals in our development
plan, to hire part time staff
and to begin the process to
move to larger quarters."
Museum Executive Vice
President, Kathy Egolf is
quick to add that this
challenge really offers the
museum membership a huge

opportunity and incentive to
make matching donations to
realize the full benefit of
Krziza's challenge.
The museum has its mid-
year membership appeal
underway at this time. In
addition, Gayle Hasemann
Tolbert, with the help of
Mike Barnswell, has taken
on the job of chairing the
museum's membership
committee and has started an
email appeal to contact
graduates of Canal school
classes. She has established a
regional museum
representative concept and
continues to seek people to
volunteer to represent the
museum at regional and local

The program to produce
and provide certificates
recognizing those
construction day workers who
were awarded a Roosevelt
Medal is a big success. The
certificates are custom made
for descendants of Medal
awardees and list the name of
the medal holder, the serial
numbers of the medals and
service bars, if any were
awarded, and the names of the
descendants for whom the
certificate has been made.
Board of Trustees
member and chairman of the
Development Committee,
Dorn Thomas, conceived the
idea as a way to raise
awareness of the Roosevelt
Medals and those who were
honored by the award, and to
serve as a revenue source for

the museum. It is also a
project that Thomas has been
able to perform remotely from
the museum, which shows
that board members and
volunteers need not be located
in the area of the museum to
make a significant
Since the program started
about a year ago, 342
certificates have been
produced for 80 customers,
bringing a net revenue to the
museum of $2,776. The
certificates are accompanied
by pertinent information on
the history of the medals and
other historical information.
They can be ordered directly

J. E. Dorn Thomas
Panama Canal Museum,

A solid membership
base is crucial to the museum
to have sufficient operating
funds for ongoing and future
operations. As of the middle
of April, the museum has 813
members, of which 552 are
paid up active members, and
261 are members who have
not yet paid their 2003 dues.
The museum database now
contains a total of 1,775
individuals. Besides
members, the list contains
names of museum visitors,
gift shop customers, and
artifact donors. The mid-year
membership appeal now
underway will approach
members who have not yet
paid their 2003 dues. In
addition, the museum's new
membership chairperson,
Gayle Hasemann Tolbert, is
extending the membership
outreach to regional groups
and class coordinators who
may not be members of the

Panama Canal Society. The
first such appeal went to over
1,300 alumni in the museum's
first use of a strictly email
Museum Treasurer,
Paul Glassburn, continues to
estimate that a solid
membership base of at least
2,000 is necessary to meet
current operational needs as
well as providing for planned
growth. The recent challenge
matching grant will provide a
one time boost to revenues
and the establishment of
funds to start planning for a
move to a larger more
accessible location, and the
hiring of some part time staff
to conduct the day to day
business, and increasing the
hours the museum is open to
the public. "But," Glassburn
adds, "a stable membership
dues base and successful gift
shop sales are the real key for
sustaining growth."

Museum Boat in Cayuco Race

Board member and Special
Projects Committee
Chairperson, Chris Skeie,
conceived the idea of an
official museum cayuco to
compete in the Fiftieth
Anniversary Ocean to Ocean
Race. With board approval,
Chris sought sponsorship
shares and traveled to Panama
where he procured a rough
dugout cayuco, assembled a
team to finish the boat and
finally man the vessel for the
various races. The cayuco,
tagged, The Fas2Rass, has
proven it is a top contender in

Board News
The Board of Trustees
had its latest meeting on
March 22, 2003, at the
museum in Seminole. Ten
trustees were present and the
following is a summary of
some of their actions.
Honorary Memberships-
The board recognized the
contributions and support of
four organizations and
community leaders. The
Panama Canal Society of
Florida, the Panama Canal
Commission Office of
Transition Administration,
the Panama Canal
Authority and the Mayor of
Seminole were all extended
honorary membership in the
New Trustee- Gayle
Hasemann Tolbert was
unanimously elected to the
board. Gayle promoted the
concept of a Membership
Committee to stimulate
museum memberships and
agreed to chair the committee.
She is another great example
of how volunteers not located
in the area of the museum can
make substantial
contributions to the museum's

the various preparatory races.
The team is made up of
Roberto Rojas, Eduardo
Sousa-Lennox, David
Sajaka and Luis Armando
Lasso. Chris Skeie, who had
considerable help and support
from Jay Gibson, enabled the
museum to provide tools and
supervise the construction of
the boat.
The Fas2Rass placed
third in the Trophy Class; a
great finish for a great team.

welfare and development.
Financial Outlook-
Treasurer Paul Glassburn
presented an encouraging
financial report. Net income
has risen to $27,969'for 2002.
Donations and dues brought
in $59,158 and the gift shop
recorded a new high of
$28,304. At the same time
the cash position increased
from $53,984 in 2001 to
$77,673. The board adopted
the recommended 2003
operating budget that projects
revenues of $120 thousand
and expenses of $96
thousand. The slight increase
in 2003 expenses is due to a
contractual rent increase,
provision for payment for
professional grant writing
services, and shipment of
artifacts on loan from the
AOSHS in Kansas.
Research Statistics-
Collections Chairperson,
Buddy Morgan, reported that
formal accessioning of
donated artifacts is
progressing well as the
volunteers process the

reported that the library is

now a reality and
that research

public continue to
increase. Forty-

Webmaster- The board
recognized the extremely
valuable work of Bill
McLaughlin, who designed
and maintained the museum
website for the last four years.
With his considerable duties
as Panama Canal Society
President, Bill felt it
necessary to have the museum
find a new webmaster. Joey
Zornes, who is involved in
exhibit design for the
museum, has also agreed to
take on the job of webmaster
after a transition period.

Gift Shop Key Provider

ISilver Gift Giving Ornament from Smithsonian has
Teddy Bear theme. New in the Gift Shop.

The Museum Gift Shop under
the management of Board of Trustees
member Faith Brundage has proven
to be a popular source of Panama
Canal related items and a good source
of revenue for the museum operations.
The challenge is to keep coming up
with new items that have special
significance to those connected with
the Panama Canal and do so at
reasonable prices, but with sufficient
profit for the museum. In the period
of October through February the gift
shop sold $15,190 of merchandise,
which is up from $7,360 for the same
period the year before.
The gift shop merchandise
includes commercially produced
books related to canal or Panamanian
history, as well as specialty items
produced specifically for the museum.
Some of the latter items include t-
shirts, postcards, calendars, tumblers
and mugs, baseball caps and unique
items like the Christmas ornament,
Centennial Medals in silver and
bronze, and the very popular maps of
the Panama Canal Zone.
The gift shop committee has
new items for sale and others that will


be unveiled at the Panama Canal
Society Reunion. A new 2003
Christmas ornament featuring the Seal
of the Panama Canal Company and
creating a pair with last year's Seal of
the Canal Zone ornament will be
available. On the shelves already are
the Teddy Bears that have mola T-
shirts and sport pennants for BHS and
CHS along with one that says, "Teddy
R said 'Make the dirt fly."' Another
new item is an oval decal patterned
after the country decals, only this one
has CZ prominently displayed and in
smaller letters above and below,
"Panama Canal Museum" and "Canal
One successful outreach for the
gift shop has been its presence at out-
of-town and even out-of-state events.
It was available for a week at the
MacDill AFB Post Exchange. The
2003 Molas calendar and 2002
Christmas ornament were popular
items that Jo-Ann Fields sold for the
museum at some holiday events in
Kerrville, TX. The full gift shop
inventory can be seen on the museum
website, and mail orders are proving


Board of Trustees Profile
(This section will highlight a trustee in each issue of the newsletter.)
Charles "Chuck" W. Hummer, Jr.- Hummer joined current vice president and founding president, Joe Wood, and past Society
president, Betty LeDoux in founding the museum in 1998. He is a third generation Zonian. His grandfather was a Roosevelt Medal
Holder with four service bars, his father worked his entire career in Panama, and he worked and lived in Panama forty years. He is a
graduate of Balboa High School, Class of 1955, and the University of Notre Dame. He was Assistant Chief of the Panama Canal
Company's Dredging Division before transferring to the headquarters of the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers in Washington, DC, in
1979. He retired in 1989 from the Corps where he held the senior executive position of Chief, Dredging Division, responsible for all
navigation and flood control dredging activities in the U. S. Since retiring he has been an independent consultant and contributing
author to the international journal, Terra et Aqua. He has also served in a number of community and technical organization
volunteer positions.
Hummer says, "When Kibby Bouche started the move to form a museum to capture the history of the Panama Canal some
twenty years ago, I was a strong supporter. When he found that he could not get the support necessary to sustain it, it was very
disappointing. When I retired and returned to the U.S. in 1994, 1 thought it was time to tackle the project. With the help of
farsighted leaders like Betty and Joe we started what has become the Panama Canal Museum. I won't say that it hasn't been
frustrating at times when those who have the greatest stake in the history are slow to support the museum. But we have a great team
and the growth has been deliberate and steady. Today, I have to say, I think we are going to make it thanks to an increasing number
of supporters. When Leo Krziza made his surprise announcement of his challenge donation, I was speechless, but both grateful and
convinced that the museum is here to stay."
Hummer lives in Pinellas Park with his wife, Sandra, and divides his time between Columbia, MD, where his grandchildren
live, and his home in Florida where he spends his days at the museum.

New Artifacts

The museum's collection
is growing both in quality and
quantity. The library from the
Washington office of the
Panama Canal Commission's
Office of Transition
Administration was recently
received by the museum and is
available in the library. All
Panama Canal Company and
Commission Board of
Directors' minutes, bound
volumes of the Record
published throughout the
construction days, bound copies
of the various canal studies, and
many other significant
documents and books were
among the items on permanent
loan to the museum.
More recently, the
museum's former curator, Alan
Brian Albright, donated a
beautiful framed copy of an
original map of the area

surrounding Panama in the era
when it was known as New
Granada. Brian discovered the
hand-colored map in
Edinburgh, Scotland where he
purchased it. The map was
originally from an atlas dated
around 1650. Other
acquisitions include a large (5-
feet in diameter) mounted
hooked rug of the Canal Zone
Seal donated by Buzzy
Kennon; an original cast iron
hitching ring from the
Administration Building
donated by Bill LeBrun;
historical items including a
model of the original ANCON
donated by Sue Sartain Clark;

New Exhibits in Progress

The centerpiece of any museum
is the main exhibit that visitors see
on trips to the museum. To date,
the museum has relied primarily on
smaller versions of the special
reunion exhibits to serve as the

main exhibit at the museum. The
Exhibits Committee under the
chairmanship of board member,
Bob Zumbado, assisted by Buddy
Morgan and Paul Glassburn, is
preparing a permanent exhibit that

will follow the history of the
Panama Canal. Beginning with
when Spain first foresaw the
isthmus as a potential shortcut
between two oceans, the exhibit
continues with the French valiant
attempt to build on their successful
construction of the Suez Canal and
finally the American construction
history and the operations,
maintenance and defense of the
canal during the American Era of
1904 1999.
The Exhibits Committee is well
into developing a traveling exhibit
for the Panama Canal Society
Reunion. The exhibit will be
centered on the role of scouting in
the history of the canal, with a
special exhibit commemorating the
50t anniversary of the Ocean to
Ocean Cayuco Race. Rick
Williams has collected a large
collection of patches related to
scouting in general and one large
display of those patches related to
the cayuco race. Rick has the
collections professionally framed.
A focal point for the cayuco race
exhibit will be a genuine successful

cayuco which is a several-time
winner. The "Due Process" was
donated to the museum by Paul
In addition, two other off-site
exhibits are under preparation.
One, which will be centered around
the importance of the role of the
mariner in the history of the
Panama Canal, is being designed
and prepared by the museum for
the Maritime Institute for
Training and Graduate Studies at
their main training facility in
Linthicum, Maryland. Graphics
artist and former Zonian, Joey
Zornes is working with museum
president, Chuck Hummer, on this
exhibit. Chris Skeie is developing
a cooperative exhibit with the
Panama Railway Company that
will have a main exhibit in Panama
and a smaller exhibit in the
corporate headquarters of Kansas
City Southern in Kansas City.
Joey Zornes is also scheduled to
be the designer of this exhibit.
