Posted: Friday, March 13, 2020

Daniel Johns, executive director of the Quayle Vice Presidential Learning Center in Huntington, will present a program titled “Indiana’s Six” at the Huntington County Historical Museum on Wednesday, March 18, at 7 p.m. His program is an overview of the office of the vice president and the lives and careers of the six vice presidents from Indiana.

The program is free to members, and those who are not members will be charged a small fee. Light refreshments will be provided following the program.

Johns was born in Muncie and graduated from Muncie Northside High School, having spent most of his time there on the tennis courts or the stage. He then graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Ball State University as outstanding senior from the Department of German. He then attended graduate school, earning his Master of Arts in public relations. He eventually earned a second bachelor’s degree in history. Following graduation, he worked for museums until eventually becoming executive director of the Quayle Center in 1999. Since that time, he has sought to make the center a focal point of educational excellence, presenting programs to thousands of school children each year.

When he is not teaching children at the center, he spends his time with his family, shooting photographs, hiking and exploring Civil War battlefields. The museum is located at 315 Court Street. The museum can be reached by calling (260) 356-7264.
