Inscription.
In Honor and Memory of
Mac Baker
Who undoubtedly would have been this museumís most ardent fan. Yet, know as you read this, that he is here, just as the soul of this nation is embodied in the flag above. Know too, that like all Americans, his admiration for the weapons inside was always tempered by his loathing for their necessity.
This a dedication to all whose lives are cut short, for whatever reason, is made in hopes that someday for the living also there shall be peace.
November 8, 1970 † † † June 25, 1984
