Preserving the Ella Sharp Textile Collection Phase III

Purchasing preservation materials to rehouse historical clothing collections from the 19th and early 20th centuries. The collections include men's, women's and children's clothing and accessories that relate to the history, culture, and daily life of south-central Michigan.

Preserving the Ella Sharp Textile Collection Phase III is a textile and artifact preservation project in which 362 Level III artifacts from the museum's permanent collection are to be placed in improved collections storage according to professional practices. Phase III is a continuation of last year's Phase II project, which was successfully funded by a NEH Preservation Assistance Grant and has been completed. Phase III addresses the preservation objectives outlined and recommended as part of the museum's 1993 CAP Survey.
