Description Magnum brand black leather men's uniform boots belonging to Gregg J. Froehner. The boots are covered in a fine layer of manufactured dust.
Historical Notes Hackensack, New Jersey, native Gregg Froehner lived in Chester with his wife, Mary, and their four school-age children. A volunteer firefighter as a teen, Gregg joined the Port Authority after college and rose to be a unit leader for the PAPD’s PATH Emergency Service Unit. On September 11, Officer Froehner responded to the North Tower from his post in New Jersey. He was 46 years old.
Curator's Comment The dust on these boots is not authentic World Trade Center dust. These boots were donated to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum for an exhibition for the first anniversary of 9/11. Staff at the Intrepid applied manufactured dust to the uniform for purposes of display. The uniform was subsequently transferred to the 9/11 Museum. HIDE
