To follow a point made earlier on this list, identifying existence of 
paper based (or other) material that could possibly be donated to a 
suitable repository (two museums were cited) where they could be kept 
for future access or study would also be useful.  Noting such materials, 
and where they are stored on the timeline would also be useful for 
future researchers as well.

Along those lines, would it be possible for this group to lay the 
groundwork for such material with the museums mentioned earlier?  It is 
possible that folks with such materials might think they would be of no 
interest, or find the overhead of contacting museums and explaining the 
material to be too great.
