Forrest Fenn – If you visited Santa Fe in the 1970’s and 1980’s a popular destination for art collectors and tourists was Fenn Gallery owned by retired Air force pilot Forrest Fenn. Celebrities, politicians, guests and ordinary folk were welcomed warmly with “please touch” signs in rooms of classic western paintings, bronzes, notorious forgeries, and treasures from around the world both ancient and modern.  Forrest may have sold his gallery in 1988 but remains busy collecting books, fishing, flying, excavating at his own pueblo archeological site, writing, hiding treasures, and at his blog oldsantafetradingco/blog
