PENNEY READIES 'TOUR' OF PAN-AM EXPOSITION

An insider's tour of artifacts from the 1901 Pan-American Exposition will be led by Charles Rand Penney at 5:45 p.m. Friday in the Buffalo and Erie County Historical Society Resource Center, 459 Forest Ave.

The renowned art collector will focus on paintings of the exposition by John Keyes, as well as other objects in the museum's extensive Pan-American collection. Penney's grandfather, Thomas Penney, was the Erie County district attorney who prosecuted and convicted Leon Czolgosz after he fatally shot President William McKinley during the exposition.

The tour will cost $15. Each ticket holder will receive a discount at a participating Elmwood district restaurant.
