About three-fourths of the McClure furniture collection was lost in when arsonists torched the old John Muir School building in 2007. But these mahogany legal bookcases, shown by Wayne Mathes, the city’s cultural services manager, on Friday, April 22, 2016, weren’t among them. They were already being used in McHenry Mansion and would have been returned to the McClure place if it ever were restored as a museum or other public venue.
