Dave Pearson Collection
The collection of Dave Pearson, a longtime resident of Fort Worth,
contains items related primarily to Fort Worth public schools and the
historic Steam Engine No. 610. Pearson graduated from Arlington
Heights High School as a mid-term graduate in 1950. Since then he has
accumulated a large collection of Fort Worth school yearbooks,
handbooks and directories, scrapbooks, newspapers, ephemera,
publications, and photographs. In addition, Pearson donated materials
related to the restoration of the historic Steam Engine No. 610.
Pearson played a major role in the restoration process and served as
President of the 610 Historical Foundation. The steam engine was used
to pull the American Freedom Train through Texas as a part of the
United States Bicentennial celebrations in 1976.
