Brad Shafran visited fifth grade students at Barnum Woods Elementary School recently to discuss presidential history. Mr. Shafran is a full-time buyer and seller of presidential and historical manuscripts and autographs. He is also the father of two Barnum Woods students, Maxton and Brody.
The visit was inspired by the recent President’s Day holiday. The purpose of his visit was to teach fifth grade students the difference between primary and secondary sources. Mr. Shafran showed the students examples of his primary sources which included historical artifacts, handwritten letters and autographed photos.
