Jamie Farr to attend opening of Red Skelton museum

VINCENNES, Ind. – Organizers say actor Jamie Farr from the TV series “M-A-S-H” is expected to attend the opening of the Red Skelton Museum of American Comedy later this month in Vincennes.

Farr was a regular on “The Red Skelton Show” before playing Cpl. Max Klinger on “M-A-S-H.” Organizers say they are receiving reservation requests for the opening of the museum from around the country. The museum will feature Skelton memorabilia donated by his widow, including original costumes and 200 original Skelton paintings.

The museum is scheduled to open July 18, which also marks the 100th anniversary of Skelton’s birth in a home near the Vincennes museum. Skelton died in 1997.
