Collection of Westclox clocks donated to historical society museum

Posted by wlpo on April 12, 2010

Big Bens, Baby Bens and clocks that were never manufactured are included in a Westclox collection that’s been donated to the La Salle County Historical Society Museum.

The sons of former Westclox stylist Ellworth Danz have given the museum the clocks plus his personal drawing desk, blue prints and meeting notes.

Museum curator Ashley Bloomquist says they received the collection Monday.  She’s hopes to have the exhibit, which includes a couple hundred pieces, ready by the end of the summer.
