This is my subhead

Hi, My name is
Ramona Duncan-Huse. I am the senior
director of the conservation department at the Indiana Historical Society. I?ve overseen the preservation of thousands
of the historic maps, manuscripts and other works on paper in our collection
for many years, and I thought it might be good to let others know about how to
preserve some of the things

family things you know, the kinds of things that everyone has in a
box up in a closet somewhere. Letters,
prints, ticket stubs they?re all made of paper and it can be tempting to just
jam them all in a box – but that really isn?t going to help them last now, is
it? So let?s take a look together. I?m going to start at the beginning and
talk about paper. Ooooooo – how INnteresting__
yeah. But if you don?t start there then
you might as well not get the box down out of the closet, because you?ll
eventually be very disappointed and you?ll start kicking yourself when you
remember you stopped reading about a sentence up. So let?s go.
