The Angel Museum

The Angel Museum in Beloit, Wisconsin. Caretaker of the Berg Angel Collection (the Bergs were recognized by Guinness as having the largest privately owned angel collection, but only a fraction can be on display at one time). Also houses the Oprah Winfrey Black Angel collection, the result of her asking viewers to send in any black angel collectibles they knew of. (Stop, she doesn't want any more!)

Review of Kay Redfield Jamison's Night Falls Fast: Understanding Suicide. Reviewed by by Mary T. Stimming.

"Though I think there is a lot of sentimentality and shallowness in the recent angel craze, I think belief in angels can, in a symbolic and anthropomorphic form, assure people of the omnipresence of God. The family and friends of many of those who commit suicide are haunted by the knowledge that their loved one died alone, and often in horrific circumstances. They may be helped by the traditional belief in guardian angels. The image of an angel cradling the loved one as he or she died may be a powerful way to help people think of God's presence."
