Paul J. Matthews, also known as Captain, is the founder of the Buffalo Soldiers National Museum. The museum is the first of its kind in the United States and is one of the top draws for tourists in Houston, Texas. Mr. Matthews served in the United States Army, including time in Vietnam during the war, and, upon his return home, went to work as a pharmaceutical representative and continued to rise through the ranks until retirement. The impetus for the Buffalo Soldiers National Museum was Paul's wife pointing out the amount of space his lifelong collection of military memorabilia pertaining to the African American experience was taking up. Mr. Matthews can be found in the museum addressing all levels of concern and teaching museum visitors an important part of our collective history.
