Hoxie Estate

Hoxie Estate

The National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors (NAWCC Inc) in 2008 received a generous gift from the estate of Kenneth C. Hoxie, a former watchmaker from New Holland, PA. Hoxie, a member of the Association from 1969-2007, designated 30% of his estate to be used as endowment funds in which the income would be used for the operation of the Association's School of Horology in Columbia. The resulting $175,000 will benefit the School in its daily operations and education of its students.

An area resident most of his life, Hoxie was the owner and operator of Hoxie Jewelry Shop. Along with his affiliation with the NAWCC, he was the founder of The Watch Makers Guild of Lancaster. Additionally, Hoxie enjoyed his membership in the Pennsylvania Jewelers Association, the American Watch Makers Institute, and the Genealogical Institute of America. He was also very involved in numerous civic organizations including the Susquehanna Masonic Lodge #364 of Millersburg, Harrisburg Shrine Club, Rajah Temple, the Reading Consistory, Charter and Past President of Millersburg Lion's Club.

The NAWCC is proud to assist in the preservation of our horological heritage. One of its primary goals is education of both this and future generations into timekeeping and timekeeping devices. If you'd like to assist in this endeavor by making a gift or considering a planned gift for the future, contact Executive Director, Steve Humphrey at 717-684-8261, ext. 209 for more information.
