From Wikipedia. The quote above from the St. Louis Magazine.
After writing about St. Louis' City Museum the last two days and seeing a picture of its outside, I just had to find out some more about this Bob Cassilly. Strange that with all my Route 66 knowledge, I never heard of the City Museum or Bob. Might he be somewhat akin to out own Bob Waldmire?
The answer: probably brothers from another mother.
Wikipedia lists him as an American sculptor, entrepreneur and creative director. That pretty well sums up Bob Waldmire as well, only perhaps a little more settled.
He was based in St. Louis and founder of the idiosyncratic City Museum which gets an average of 700,000 visitors a year and is considered one of St. Louis' major attractions.
