A fan of fans

You might call Tom Frampton a fan fanatic.

Last week, he opened the Museum of the Antique Fan Collectors Association.

The collection is housed in the corporate headquarters of Fanimation, an Indiana company that makes upscale ceiling fans.

Frampton is the company president and he owns about a-third of the antique fans on display.

For other fan fans, the museum offers a chance to see everything from electric fans, to water-powered fans that date from the early 1880s.
