The Spunky Norwegian Foundation has awarded 2 scholarships to Mansfield University

The Spunky Norwegian Foundation has awarded 2 scholarships to Mansfield University. One in the name of Ole B. Bull the Norwegian violin virtuoso who started the Norwegian Communities in 1852 at Crossfork PA ; now the home of Ole Bull State Park. That Scholarship will go to the violin major in the music department. The other under the name of her Excellency Dr. Inez Stewart Bull will go to the piano major of the university.

In addition the foundation has given Ray Knight from St. Marys a grant to purchase music instruments and associated equipment for his combined high school band.

The foundation has also set aside a special fund for the move and relocation of the museum buildings now located on Cherry Springs Road in Galeton to a larger piece of land that will house the New Ole Bull Museum and Scandinavian gift shop with hopes that it will be open in time for the 61st Ole Bull Music Festival to be held in October of 2013 at Galeton High School.

It is great they are supporting music education but please stop referring to Inez Bull as "doctor" because she was not a doctor. She was not a direct descendant of Ole Bull and her museum was a joke so the worst thing they can do is relocate it. Why don't they put in a real museum? I am betting that if they would cut the "Bull" that Inez represented and involve the real descendants of Ole Bull, they could get some support for this plan.

I would support a real museum recognizing Ole Bull's colonies at Carter Camp, Oleana and "New Norway" (where Ole Bull State Park is today) as long as this Inez nonsense was not a part of it. Now that she is passed Potter County has a real chance to get it right.

They have a great memorial to Ole Bull already. It is called Ole Bull State Park. Why not put a small museum there or if it catches on it could become a larger museum? Everyone used to tolerate Inez's antics because they felt sorry for her, so she was allowed to share her delusions of grandeur.
