Allan Hayes

“Corpus Christi Collectibles”


Two-time NCHS Past President Allan Hayes has lived in south Texas since 1975.
He spends his free time enjoying a wide-variety of hobbies, but history and
genealogy are two of his greatest passions. Sometime in the mid-80s he began
purchasing old Corpus Christi postcards, and shortly afterward expanded his
collecting to include other souvenir items and memorabilia from the city and
surrounding area.
Allan’s presentation will be an overview of the things he collects. These Corpus
Christi-related items cover a wide-variety of materials. Many are keepsakes
people of yesteryear acquired to help them remember the locations they lived,
worked, and sought recreation and the landmarks associated with those places.
Come see what memories these treasures might help you recall!
