Editor's Note: Dale Schwamborn, nephew of the late Wally Byam, founder of Airstream, provided this report on his visit to the Baker Heritage Museum in Baker City, Ore., where memorabilia of the RV legend is on display.

The Baker Heritage Museum did a wonderful job in displaying the historic items of Wally Byam, Helen Byam Schwamborn, Airstream, the Wally Byam Caravan Club, and several major Caravans including the 1959 African Caravan.

The display has been moved to a permanent location.

Almost all items came from the estate of Helen Byam Schwamborn.

If you have chance to visit the museum, I know you will enjoy the display.

On a more personal note, I know that the museum is always looking for sponsorship in the form of donations.

Wallace Merle Byam (Wally Byam) and Helen Elmore Byam (Helen Byam Schwamborn) are native children of Baker City.

It is fitting that these items are at home at the museum.
