Dottie's Dames Pinups, based in Colorado, presented their first virtual pin up contest: Rosie Riveters, Pinups in the Workforce. This contest celebrated the 100th year of the ratification of the 19th amendment! We celebrate women and all they have done and do in the work force. Liberty Lou received first prize for her Rosie the Riveter photo shoot at the American Heritage Museum.

Liberty Lou, originally from Mansfield, MA, now resides in Chicago after graduating from Columbia College Chicago with a degree in Fashion Business. She has always had an interest in historical fashion, was inspired by "The Rosies" at a very young age. She uses these hard working women as inspiration for her modern pin up style. Congratulations Liberty Lou!

Jacques Littlefield’s fascination with military vehicles began in childhood. From his earliest days, he studied and created intricate models of tanks and military machines. His first remote-controlled scale model tank was completed in college. Jacques acquired a full size military vehicle in 1975, a World War II era M3 Scout car. By 1998, his collection had grown to over 200 tanks and vehicles. To manage these, and to restore more, Littlefield established the Military Vehicle Technology Foundation in Portola Valley, California. Following a decade-long battle with cancer, Jacques died on January 7, 2009. Over his lifetime, Littlefield amassed the world’s largest privately held collection of tanks and military vehicles in the world.

Receiving this historically important and extensive collection was a tremendous honor for the Collings Foundation. Exhibiting these artifacts in the most meaningful way possible is our duty. We designed the new American Heritage Museum to fully engage people in understanding our turbulent past. In this remarkable place, American history will be explored, studied, and most of all, remembered. Through educational interpretation, and a chronologically arranged series of dioramas and exhibits, the American Heritage Museum will bring the history of our veterans to life.
