Subject: Storage of ostrich plumes

Storage of ostrich plumes

From: Larry Hutchings <history>
Date: Friday, December 13, 1996
I'm looking for a creative (and, naturally, inexpensive) way to
store loose ostrich plumes and feathered caps. We are located in a
ninety year old brick building with virtually no climate control.
Temperature is fairly constant, but RH ranges seasonally from about
10% to 45%. Controlling dust and pests is a challenge in our
building, so I would like to isolate and contain sensitive
materials, buffering them from the environmental as much as
possible. Thanks for your help,
