SBJ’s 40 Under 40 Charity Partner Fundraiser – Congratulate Lindsay Tobin with your gift!

Congratulations to Springfield Business Journal 40 Under 40 honoree Lindsay Tobin! Lindsay says, “I love history and I love to read. My son’s name is Holden – as in Holden Caulfield from The Cather in the Rye by JD Salinger. The advice young, intelligent, yet cynical Holden is given by his English teacher Mr. Antolini perfectly sums up why history is important:

‘Among other things, you’ll find that you’re not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by human behavior. You’re by no means alone on that score, you’ll be excited and stimulated to know. Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some of them kept records of their troubles. You’ll learn from them—if you want to. Just as someday, if you have something to offer, someone will learn something from you. It’s a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. And it isn’t education. It’s history. It’s poetry.’

I love this quote so much that I had it beautifully written out for me to display in my office.”
Support Lindsay’s fundraising efforts for the History Museum on the Square’s educational programming for local schools.


All proceeds from the 40 Under 40 charity partner fundraiser will support the History Museum on the Square’s educational programming, including our newest program Meet Missouri.

In the Meet Missouri program, students will have the opportunity to experience history like never before. Centered around notable Missourians, the Meet Missouri programming offers field trips, scavenger hunts, and interactive experiences to bring Missouri history to life! Missouri is a beautiful state, but to truly know its history, you must know its people.

Help us fund educational programming and provide scholarships to students!
