Collections Storage Improvement for the General John A. Logan Museum

The purchase of storage furniture and preservation supplies to upgrade the current collections storage area of the museum. The museum collection contains 1,900 items, including oil paintings, furniture, ceramics, military artifacts, medical records, photographs, correspondence, and election memorabilia that document Civil War General and Illinois politician John A. Logan.

In 2007 an NEH-funded preservation assessment was conducted at the General John A. Logan Museum by Conservator Shelley Reisman Paine. This grant will support the next phase of our collections preservation efforts and allow the museum to implement Ms. Reisman’s recommendations for improving collection storage. Specifically, these recommendations included: (1) House the collection in archival boxes on metal shelving or cabinets. (2) Develop a collection suite to include areas for all tasks related to use and care of the collection, including registration, examination, preparation and storage. (This project will be undertaken by the Museum and will be a cost-sharing contribution to the project.) (3) Purchase museum-quality cabinets.
