Quest Speaker from the Durham Museum
Carrie Wieners, curator of The Durham Museum in Omaha, visited the Society on October 18, 2012. She came and briefed members on the proper methods of preservation and storage of historical items. We discussed in depth the need for accurate record keeping in terms of retrieval, research, and the legal responsibility.
Society members brought items from home and received advise from Carrie on the best ways to preserve and store them. They included glassware, pottery, china, paper items, textiles, leather and metal goods. It was an interesting evening and everyone agreed to have similar speakers attend.
