Notes from IHA

In celebration of the thirty-fifth anniversary of the founding of the Illinois Heritage Association, we are entering the names of all IHA members into monthly drawings for archival products, donated by Gaylord Brothers, suppliers of library and archival products.  Gaylord was founded in 1896 by Henry and Willis Gaylord, who worked by day in a savings bank and in off hours toiled in a cellar workshop constructing mending tape they sold to banks around the country. The Gaylords soon expanded to library products, for which the company is known today. The company sends out catalogs and has an extensive online listing of its offerings at www.gaylord.com.  The Illinois Heritage Association has had a long association with Gaylord. Our members receive an 18 percent discount on Gaylord archival supply orders by using the code IHA15 when they contact the company. The people at Gaylord are nice to deal with, and we have found the company to be reliable in filling orders. Gaylord is known for donating door prizes and supplies for nonprofit workshops. In addition to providing high-quality products for our current drawings, the company generously donated prizes for the drawings we conducted during 2011 in celebration of our thirtieth anniversary. We are pleased to announce that the winners of our drawings for January, February, March, and April 2016 are the Frankfort Area Historical Museum, West Frankfort; Livingston County Historical Society, Pontiac; Bessie Coleman Branch, Chicago Public Library; and Fort Hill Heritage Center, Mundelein. The Frankfort Area Historical Museum will receive a flip-top document box. The Livingston County organization will also receive a flip-top document box. These useful boxes can store file folders with documents, and they can be shelved vertically or horizontally. The Bessie Coleman Branch Library will receive 100 reinforced 1/2 tab legal-size file folders in cream. The Fort Hill Heritage Center will receive 100 cream file folders in letter size.  In our March-April newsletter we provided brief descriptions of the winners of the first four drawings. We will announce future winners in our newsletters throughout 2016.                                                                                                                                          PLM
