A lifelong enthusiast of ancient artifacts, Snow began visiting the museum after moving to Atlanta in 1994. He brought his own family, friends and colleagues to the museum on a regular basis to discuss the artifacts, but wanted to grow his informal tours. With the museum’s permission, Snow began leading groups of 10 to 15 people through the museum on Sunday afternoons.
