Photos Heading to Kansas Museum

KSAL StaffAugust 21, 2015

A group that’s worked to reunite Baxter Springs residents with hundreds of photos displaced by the April 2014 tornado is turning the remaining photos over to a Baxter Springs museum.

The Joplin Globe reports a press conference to mark the transfer is scheduled for Saturday at the Baxter Springs Heritage Center and Museum.

National Photo Disaster Rescue, based in Carthage, Missouri, returned more than 1,000 photos of those collected after the tornado. Officials with the group, which began after the 2011 Joplin tornado, hope to return additional photos Saturday to residents.

The photos were processed at NPDR headquarters.

In 2013, the group turned over to the Joplin Museum Complex some 17,000 photos displaced by the May 2011 Joplin tornado. They also reunited about 17,000 photos with individuals and families.
