finances, elections, and committees. SPNHC affiliated people documented in the collection include Suzanne MacLaren, Judith Price, Lisa Palmer, Linda Hollenberg, Carolyn L.
Rose, and Paisley S. Cato. Particularly well documented is the SPNHC publication, Storage of Natural History Collections: Ideas and Practical Solutions, 1992, which

in March and September. The Newsletter highlights scientific collections, the society's presidential and committees' reports, publications of interests and more. In
2014, the Newsletter became the SPNHC Connection. Also, a part of the collection is the Collection Forum, the official journal of SPNHC, that is published
to disseminate substantive information concerning the development and preservation of natural history collections.
Materials include correspondence, meeting minutes, newsletters and other serial publications, annual meeting records, workshop records, membership lists, committee records,
