Museum of Cultural and Natural History Collections Project

The rehousing of over 1,400 items including military medals, patches, and equipment ranging from the French and Indian War to the Vietnam War, a Civil War medical field kit, medical tools such as needles and surgery knives used during the Great Depression for home births, and cameras and photographs ranging from the 1880s to the present. Materials from these diverse collections are used in exhibitions designed by museum staff as well as by students in the University’s Museum Studies and Cultural Resource Management programs.

Funding will be used to purchase supplies needed to upgrade care of important segments (military, medical, photographic) of the history museum’s permanent collection as we work toward achieving future accreditation by the American Alliance of Museums.
