Iwant to publicly thank Mr. Mike Truax, President of the 1904 World's Fair Society for the incredible
guided tour for my wife and I of Forest Park as well as a surprise stop-off at the Arch. Mike explained where many of the Fair's structures once stood while we gazed on grassy hills, park areas and golf courses. His knowledge and enthusiasm is amazing and captivating. Of course, we never met before, and had only a handful of email correspondences prior to rendezvousing in Forest Park; ie- he didn't have to the take the time, fuel, to do this, but he did. I will never forget this.
I also want to thank Mike for getting me active in the 1904 World's Fair Society, as well as suggestions for my site.
Mike, knowing you is an honor, and even though we live over a thousand miles away, I consider you a
friend, and of course a friend of this site. Thank you!
