The Ferrell Collection: Cataloging and Photography

Filed under: Podcasts and Slideshows — Matt Anderson @ 3:09 pm

Collections Assistants Jane Wong and John Fulton discuss their efforts to catalog and photograph more than 3,000 different objects in the Richard Ferrell Flour Milling Industry History Collection. The size of the collection, together with some of the unusual items it contained, presented special challenges. You can learn more about the collection from Mr. Ferrell himself in an earlier podcast.
