On the town: A Historic Night of Jazz


The 2013 World Series already decided, supporters of the St. Petersburg Museum of History went back in time, touring "Schrader's Little Coopers­town," the current exhibition. Collector Dennis Schrader has loaned his impressive trove to the museum for the next two decades.

The autographed baseballs number more than 4,600; as fans know, Cooperstown, N.Y., is home to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.

The guild of the St. Petersburg museum presented "Historic Night of Jazz," a fundraiser that featured the Tampa Bay Jazz Ensemble.

Organizing the event were guild president Sparky Ierna, Mary Wyatt Allen, Judy Cuniff, Kathy Guckenberger, Jackie O'Brien and Shirley O'Sullivan, Sally Poynter, Carol Phelps and Edie Spies.

Director Rui Farias presented the guild with a permanent plaque acknowledging its efforts on behalf of the organization.

Additional guests included Roseanna and Bob Costa, Roxanna and Bob Fall, Joyce and Walter Larson and Nancy and Steve Westphal.
