Shortly before the Dick Tracy Museum closed at the Old Courthouse (that’s the place this OLD county treasurer served his four years), the McHenry County Convention and Visitors Bureau bought yellow fedoras for members of the American Bus Association.
There were used as a marketing tool.
Cort Carlson, the group’s Executive Director explained that he got a lot of positive feedback from the hat promotion. He reported that the Dick Tracy tie-in seemed to have the biggest interest among the group tour market.
I guess that’s folks who take bus tours various places.
And, maybe that includes old folks like me who remember Dick Tracy as a comic strip that they read every day.
I wonder how we could get the Chester Gould Dick Tracy Museum open again.
And, the fact that it would be most appropriately placed in Woodstock bothers me not one little bit.
