Museum seeking welfare artifacts

Artifacts and photographs documenting the Church's welfare and humanitarian service efforts are needed for an upcoming exhibit at the Museum of Church History and Art.

Museum history curator Mark Staker needs objects from the United States dating before 1950 that help to tell the story of welfare. Among other things, he is looking for early fast offering envelopes and bags and boxes used to package products made for distribution through bishops' storehouses.Artifacts and photographs are most difficult to locate for the help given internationally during disasters such as earthquakes and famines, he said.

Anyone who can help locate any of these items may contact Brother Staker at 801-240-1754 or write to him at the museum, 45 N. West Temple, Salt Lake City, Utah, 84150-3810.
