Pesticides

From: Jessica Fletcher <jfletcher>

Has anyone come across references to the "Spradlin Process for moth
proofing textiles"?  As part of our compliance with NAGPRA, we have
been researching the history of pesticide use on our American Indian
collections.  Apparently, the Spradlin Process was used on many
textiles and other objects in the 1930's and 1940's.  I would really
like to know what this involved. Any clues?
