Carol Tobe, the first director of the Museum of the American Printing House for the Blind, retired in 2005. She talks about the establishment of the museum, which opened in 1994; the renaming of the museum in 1999 to the Marie and Eugene Callahan Museum, in honor of generous benefactor Euguene Callahan and his wife (the name changed in 2008 to the Museum of the American Printing House for the Blind, with the original gallery becoming the Marie and Eugene Callahan Gallery); the development of the museum's traveling exhibits; and the 2003 renovation of the collections storage room.
