Subject: Humidification


From: Neil Patrick O'Donnell <npo>

The Society's collection of Native American material includes
several pairs of moccasins that have completely dried out during
the last century.  I have placed one pair in our home-made humidity
chamber and after several rotations, the pair softened up quite a
bit.  However, once out of the chamber the pair quickly harden
again.  I would appreciate any suggestions on anything we can do to
prevent the pair from hardening again.
