Kollbaum studied Jefferson Barracks and its history throughout his tenure as the Historic Site Curator from the 1980s until the 2010s when he retired. He continues to assist Jefferson Barracks as an emeritus advisor. You will also find many unique "Jefferson Barracks" named items that are specific to our gift shop.
