About Mike and Judy

Mike was a teacher from the Midwest who moved to Montana to teach Spanish at Capital High and whole-heartedly embraced all the outdoor life his adopted state offered. Accomplished author, photographer and cowboy poet, he has collected everything he could find from Montana and the West. With the combination of photography and poetry, he has published seven books, two DVDs and three CDS. He represented Montana at the Library of Congress Bicentennial in Washington, D.C. He has presented programs throughout the U.S. and Canada and even eastern Russia. Mike continues to live in Helena.

Sara Judith Logan was born in New York, attended Cornell University and met Mike Logan in Switzerland while both participated in the Experiment in International Living. From that serendipitous meeting, the Logans spent a lifetime together, and with their sons, Sean and Mark, enjoyed their Montana lives. Judy’s career as an administrator at St. John’s and St. Peter’s Hospitals kept her busy and her love of art and music kept her fulfilled. Judy played violin, piano and concert harp and often performed with the Helena Symphony. She learned oil painting and donated and sold her work. Judy died in 2015.

The house the Logans have called home for decades is said to have been the servants’ quarters for a now-gone mansion, later becoming a boarding house.

We’re honored to present the lifetime collection of these remarkable people. Please enjoy this great Mike Logan essay (link below) and join us in October at their historic home, 32 S. Howie. ~ Dave and Crystal
