Reply To: Questions regarding Deeds of Gift

Thanks, everyone, for your input!

In the case of the deceased donors, there is no documentation I am aware of beyond notes in the database  -i.e., no written offers or acceptance. Most of the items have been in the museum’s possession for twenty -thirty years, but with just hand-written notecards by volunteers noting whom the item came from – and now most of the notecards have gone missing as well.
