Handling of Collections at MIHS: An Anthropological Perspective (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Handling of Collections at MIHS: An Anthropological Perspective
Author: Morgan Andrews
Abstract: The Marco Island Historical Museum is a non-profit organization with the goal of preserving the history and heritage of Marco Island and the surrounding area. The museum opened in 2011, with funds raised by the Marco Island Historical Society. The Marco Island Historical Society received a grant to catalog and curate the artifacts which had been both excavated and donated to the museum by Marco Island residents. Previously, these artifacts were housed in boxes and bags that would not aid in preservation. It was the responsibility of interns to catalog the artifacts and switch them over to museum grade storage materials.

Abstract: In 2016, the Marco Island Historical Society (MIHS) received a Preservation Assistance Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to purchase preservation supplies necessary to rehouse the entirety of its archaeological holdings from Marco Island, Florida. Sites represented in the collections include Key Marco, Caxambas Point, and Horr’s Island, which have been well-known to archaeologists in Florida for a century. Between January 2017 and July 2018, with the assistance of student interns, the MIHS successfully rehabilitated these collections so that they not only be adequately preserved, but also be made readily available to academic researchers and the general public.
