Auctioneer’s Note:  James and Jerry (Murphy) Geekie were a well-known and well-respected couple in the Paris, IL area.  James received his B.A. and M.B.A. from Indiana State University and would become Bureau Chief of Personnel for the Illinois Department of Transportation. In 1979, President Jimmy Carter appointed him to be a Federal Bankruptcy Trustee – the only one in the nation who was not an attorney.  He was also a successful real estate developer and owned several local businesses in Paris.  Jerry worked at the Illinois Cereal Mill in Paris while also raising three children.  In addition to being an avid golfer and sportsman, Jim enjoyed collecting.  His family reports: “Dad collected things all his life and now it’s time to get rid of it!” We are pleased to be offering this expansive and diverse collection at auction.
