#history: Museum Closed, Exhibits Sold at Auction

Ft. Wayne, Ind., has raised $50,000 by auctioning off items from its closed Jack Diehm Museum of Natural History, including  a polar bear that sold for $7,500.

The museum was founded in 1965 by taxidermist Berlen Diehm to honor his son, who was killed in a car accident, according to the Ft. Wayne Sun-Sentinel.
