The Collector of Time
As Mark McKinley puts it, “no collector ever says, ‘I’ve gone too far.'” After 27 years and an official Guinness World Record, he stands by that statement.
Over the past 27 years, Mark McKinley, a retired professor of psychology in Amherst, Ohio, has amassed the world’s largest collection of talking clocks. Numbering over 1,000, his collection includes talking clocks from every era and corner of world. The clocks fill every corner of his house and chime continuously throughout the day.
