The data and documentation I am trying to archive for Al
Kossow and the CHM. My wife and friends are aware of
this should it not happen before I complete the task, and
the archives would be cared for.
It is sad that situations occur where the archives are lost
due to others around the collector being unaware of the
value of the archive, or hostile to the activity. There
probably is a long list of things ways archives are lost.
Also as a lot of us age, and become unemployed we
have to break up very nice collections, or halt activity
building them, and the collections are liquidated before
data can be archived.
