Stories from The Flood of '72: Dr. Robert Brill

"Our goal was to overcome defeatism before it ever had a chance to set in, and to provide encouragement for the stricken people of the community," declared Dr. Robert H. Brill, director of the Museum during the post-flood restoration period. The Flood of '72: Community, Collections, and Conservation chronicles the determination of Museum staff and the community to rebuild, and sheds light on the unique conservation techniques that were used to restore Library materials.
