Our fall Collecting Recollections series will focus on members of the Ringling community who have seen – and made – a lot of changes in their time at the museum! They’ll share their memories of The Ringling and reflect on how it has evolved and grown over the years.
Wilmer Pearson was the 2016-2018 Chair of the Docent Advisory Council at The Ringling. He has been a volunteer at the Ringling Museum since 2002 after retiring from working 37 years as an educator in Wisconsin. Wilmer presently serves as a docent at the Ca'd'Zan, the Circus Museum, Gardens and Grounds, and school tours. He also volunteers in the Membership and Family Programs departments at the Ringling. Wilmer served as Co-Chair of the Events Committee of the Docent Advisory Council from 2014 to 2016 and as Chair of the Ringling Volunteer Services Advisory Council from 2010 to 2014.
Collecting Recollections is made possible in part through the generosity of Linnie E. Dalbeck Memorial Foundation Trust.
