Jim Overcash has embraced his new job at the Old Post Office Museum and Art Center with a youthful fervor typical of the 63-year-old.

For Overcash, the job is a perfect fit for a myriad reasons. Number one, he loves art, history and the museum. His biggest contribution to Western Heritage Days, scheduled through Sept. 28, was nabbing the art work of Tom Miller, a rapidly rising Hill Country artist.

The assistant director comes to Western Heritage with a full understanding of cowboy culture and history. His dad was a cattle buyer, farmer and rancher in Throckmorton, and his uncle trained two world champion cutting horses. His grandfather, Jess Overcash, was a farmer and rancher north of Woodson in the Masters Community. (Read more in the Sept. 18 edition of The Graham Leader.)
