  • Meet a Volunteer: Glenn Leege

    Glenn Leege is another of our long-serving volunteers having been with us for 12 years. He retired from Hamilton in September 2003 and the very next month he was giving tours at the original museum site on Jefferson Street.

    Bob Mueller is one of the museum’s longest serving volunteers. He has been here since 1995 before the museum was even open!

He joined the Navy in the late 1950’s and taught at the Naval Amphibious Base in San Diego. In 1963, when his military service was complete, a job in lab equipment sales was waiting for him at Hamilton’s. He eventually moved into project management and ended his career at Hamilton’s with a total of 34 years which includes a 2 year return to the job from 2003-2005.

    In Two Rivers, Bob and his first...
