The goal of the initiative is to provide access to all past issues of the Heisey News (official newsletter of the Heisey Collectors of America, Inc.) to anyone wanting more information on Heisey glassware.
The Joe Lokay Initiative was first proposed by Walter Ludwig (former Curator, National Heisey Glass Museum) in June, 2010 as a way to honor longtime Heisey Collectors of America, Inc. member Joe Lokay. Joe, who had passed away over Memorial Day weekend of that year, was an avid researcher of Heisey glass and the history of the company and had researched and written many of the articles in these monthly publications.
“I can not think of a more fitting tribute than to make his legacy of research available to even more people.” – Walter Ludwig
