Hiring a consultant and purchasing environmental monitoring equipment to conduct an environmental study of the center's storage room. The collections include military uniforms, service records, medals, weapons, aircraft, and machinery related to the Second World War.

The R. I. Bong WWII Heritage Center (BHC) is requesting an NEH Preservation Assistance Grant for Smaller Institutions to hire Rebecca T. Ellis, environmental control consultant of Questions & Solutions Engineering, Inc. Ellis will perform an on-site environmental study focusing specifically on the problem of fluctuating temperature, humidity, and air flow in the BHC's Collections Storage Room. She will identify, evaluate, and recommend options for improving climate control and produce a written report containing practical remedies for solving the problems. The BHC curator will purchase several temperature/RH/air flow data loggers to record environmental conditions prior to and after the consultant's visit. This project, scheduled to start January 2007 and end December 2007, is documented in BHC's recently completed NEH-sponsored General Assessment Survey Report as the critical next step in its humanities preservation efforts.

An assessment of the storage space and the purchase of preservation supplies and environmental monitoring equipment to help meet the preservation needs of the R.I. Bong WWII Heritage Center. The Center's collection consists of more than 8,500 archival materials, audiotapes, and historic artifacts--including uniforms, weapons, and memorabilia--associated with the Second World War.

The Bong Veterans Historical Center (BHC) is requesting an NEH Preservation Assistance Grant to hire Neil Cockerline, Director of Preservation Services at the Midwest Art Conservation Center (MACC) in Mpls., MN to perform a comprehensive collections storage analysis of the BHC's current artifact collections and to work with the BHC's Curator to define a high-density compact storage system design to accommodate current and future collections. This design will improve BHC's ability to monitor artifact conditions, protect artifacts from agents of deterioration and improve access to collections for exhibit, education and research use. The BHC Curator will also purchase collections care supplies to both monitor and prepare the artifacts for future placement within the compact storage system. This project is documented in BHC's completed Long-Range Preservation Plan and an NEH-funded General Assessment Survey as a critical next step in its humanities preservation efforts.
