The Scott & Zelda Fitzgerald Museum

Last night, I attended my first meeting as a new board member for the Scott & Zelda Fitzgerald Museum. I’m quite proud to be working with the new executive director Sara Powell, with attorney Julian McPhillips, and whole slew of other people who have been working hard for a long time.

The museum is located in Felder Avenue in the Old Cloverdale neighborhood in Montgomery. Some people may know, but others may not: F. Scott Fitzgerald’s wife Zelda was a native Montgomerian, and the two met here during Scott’s military service. The couple lived in the home that is now the museum in the early 1930s, but it was later broken up into apartments. Montgomery attorney Julian McPhillips later “saved [the house] from demolition” in 1986.

I’m not yet sure what my role will be in supporting the mission of the museum, but I’ve gotten my feet wet.
