Dime Novels

October 2, 2006

We are going to receive a donation of about 900 “Dime Novels” produced between 1877 and 1905, from Eugene Myler. The collection belonged to is father Joseph J. Myler, Hobart class of 1919 and one time trustee. We met with Gene and his wife, Shirley, last Thursday. They brought samples for us to examine, and we had a great time getting to know them.

I have a question for you archivists out there. What is the best method of preservation and storage? If any of you have a similar collection could you contact me and tell me how you have handled them?
