- Maureen Taylor, the Photo Detective who will be the presenter at our Fall Conference, is planning to produce a documentary titled, "Revolutionary Voices: A Last Muster Film" based on her "Last Muster" books. She is using a Kickstarter Campaign to fund the first phase of the production costs. (Kickstarter is an online method to get initial funding of creative projects from the general public, opening up opportunities for anyone to present a project and get funding from people who believe it should be done.) If you agree with us and would like to see this film produced, please make a donation at the address below by April 10th. For more information, see the Press Release about the film. You can view Maureen's video summary of the project and make a donation at www.kickstarter.com/projects/lastmusterfilm/revolutionary-voices-a-last-muster-film.
