Funding for this particular grant was made possible by the Special Projects fund that had been bequeathed by the family of the late Tom Ehlers.

The society requested funds for a computer system, including a “Past Perfect” program designed specifically for museums to aid in the recording of artifacts, their donors and the history of that artifact.
