LeMay Family Collection FoundationEdit

I'm trying to sort out quite a mess at Category:LeMay Family Collection Foundation; since you created the category, I'm hoping you can help sort this out.

  1. The LeMay Museum (Category:LeMay Museum) is, indeed a museum in Tacoma, but apparently it is completely separate from the Foundation. I'm pretty certain that the foundation itself is not in any sense in Tacoma, but it is currently in Category:Museums in Tacoma, Washington. Is there some basis for that?
  2. Are the Foundation and the museum at the former Marymount Military Academy one and the same, or should we introduce Category:LeMay Family Collection at Marymount as a subcat of the foundation category? Usually, I would expect a foundation and a museum to be two separate entities, one being an "umbrella" over the other.
  3. Right now the bulk of the images in Category:LeMay Family Collection Foundation have names like File:Parkland, WA, USA - panoramio (137).jpg and are also in Category:Parkland, Washington. Was the museum formerly in Parkland? Or (this is what I suspect) was some visitor who took these photos on Panaramio simply confused what town he was in (Marymount is in Spanaway)? The photos are only dated four years ago. en:LeMay Family Collection Foundation doesn't indicate that the museum moved recently, but it doesn't give any dates at all. https://web.archive.org/web/20140304194254/http://www.lemaymarymount.org/faqs/ predates the date given for these photos, so it would suggest that it was at Marymount at that time. Nothing in these images seems to me to suggest a different location, but I could be missing something.

Anyway, can you help out at all? Or am I on my own? Jmabel ! talk 07:27, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

I see your point, Jmabel, these are indeed two separate entities, at 325 152nd St E., Tacoma, WA 98445 and 2702 East D Street, Tacoma, WA 98421. "While Harold [LeMay] passed away in 2000, his legacy and collection carries on at LeMay Family Collection Foundation in Marymount and at LeMay – America’s Car Museum in nearby Tacoma". However, the Marymount collection is not just cars: "The LeMay Collections include over 1,500 vintage vehicles, a wide variety of Americana and memorabilia (dolls, toys, antiques, farm equipment, vintage radios, etc.), a Rodin Sculpture Garden and much more. Much of the Collections are hosted on the historic grounds of former Marymount Military Academy in Tacoma, WA." So, it's more like, Category:LeMay Family Collections at Marymount.

  • That's fine with me.
  • I'm presuming that you have no reason to think that "Parkland" was anything but an error, right? - Jmabel ! talk 03:54, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
  • I believe I have it sorted out, though you may want to have a look. Obviously, the many pictures of cars, etc., could use decent categories for just what is in the picture, but that's really not my area of expertise. I just sorted out the museum stuff. - Jmabel ! talk 04:16, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

tête d'indien de l'escadrille LayetteEdit

je constate une croix gammée sur la coiffe indienne de l'une des deux photos, hors la croix gammée est arrivé en 1939 et n'existait pas à la date de création de l'escadron Lafayette

Good question, 2a01:cb14:80d0:3400:b58e:e3ef:8a5c:28a9. Per Holocaust Museum, "The swastika is an ancient symbol that was in use in many different cultures for at least 5,000 years before Adolf Hitler made it the centerpiece of the Nazi flag. ... In the beginning of the twentieth century the swastika was widely used in Europe. It had numerous meanings, the most common being a symbol of good luck and auspiciousness." Hope it helps. --Taterian (talk) 14:01, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
