Georgetown University Dramatic Association poster
Georgetown University Dramatic Association poster, circa 1911.
This poster from the University Archives was severely damaged by heat and humidity. Cracks and tears were already apparent, and more damage was a continual risk due to embrittlement. Conservation of the poster included: surface cleaning; filling in cracks with toned paper and cellulose powder; deacidification; and hinging the print into a window mat for further protection into the future.
