Janis Joplin memorabilia threatened: Hurricane Harvey

Postby Squidgy » Wed Aug 30, 2017 8:30 pm

Entire city of Port Arthur, TX is flooded, according to mayor. 26 inches of rain in short time.
The Museum of the Gulf Coast there houses a whole bunch of Janis Joplin memorabilia, including her famous psychedelic Porche, stage costumes, paintings, etc; also memorabilia of Big Bopper and numerous other Texas musicians. I spent a wonderful day there once.
I figure this would be of interest to the Leonard/Janis connection.
I called the museum but of course got no answer. Have relatives stranded but safe near there and am planning to go in next week, or whenever roads are passable, to help dig out.
If possible, will check on the Museum.
