Today, I am on location in Las Vegas Nevada having my flag flown at the Clark County Museum. I am being hosted by Mark P. Hall-Patton: Administrator, Clark County Museum system.

This is the same flag that has flown over Cheyenne high school in North Las Vegas where my son Robert teaches English.

It is honor and privilege to do a show with a gentleman that I have seen on TV (“Pawn Stars” and “American Restoration”, take the time out of his busy schedule to both hoist my flag and then talk about his adventures as a museum administer. 

Mark Hall-Patton is the Museums Administrator for the Clark County museum system, where he oversees the Clark County Museum, the Howard W. Cannon Aviation Museum, and the Searchlight History Museum.  He has been with Clark County for nineteen years, and was previously the Director of the San Luis Obispo County Historical Museum in California.

He is a MAP surveyor for the American Association of Museums.  He has authored two books, Memories of the Land (a place names dictionary of San Luis Obispo County, California) and Asphalt Memories (a street names dictionary of the Vegas valley).  He has written over 400 published articles, and has written and produced 48 local history videos.  In 2009, he hosted a live interview program on C4 television in the Vegas valley, and is regularly seen on the History Channel’s Pawn Stars as a visiting expert.  He has also appeared on American Restoration and Mysteries at the Museum.

In addition to the Nevada Museums Association, where he served as President from 2000 to 2002 and 2008-2010, and has previously served on the California Association of Museums and Western Museums Association boards.  He is a member of the Board of the Nevada Test Site Historical Foundation, and the Nevada Aerospace Hall of Fame.
