Panel 1



Harry Kollatz Jr., a native Richmonder born in a hospital now gone condo and raised on an Edsel farm in Chesterfield County, is the senior writer at Richmond magazine, an historian prone to occasional spasms of theater, and a general bon vivant, raconteur and flaneur, and some other French words we can’t really use in a family environment.

He is the author of the novel Carlisle Montgomery and two works of regional history: True Richmond Stories and Richmond in Ragtime: Socialist, Suffragists, Sex & Murder.

He is perhaps best known in Richmond for his ‘Lee’s Chicken Sign Weather Report,” Richmond’s Most Trusted Name In Weather ®. When not in his office Mr. Kollatz exercises Bertha Sue, a rescue from the city pound and roams the planet with his wife, the artist Amie Oliver.
