Help for collectors

WmBeem
Oz Club email….  Word of new Oz productions, Oz research and Oz products regularly arrive. But tucked in with those predictable notes are others. Notes from descendants of contributors to Oz history, questions about early members, and requests to help identify Oz ephemera come to mind. One recent email made me a new friend (Hi, Cindy!) while another shared resources that could benefit Club members.
If you are a collector you have likely been concerned with cleaning, storage and authenticating pieces in your collection.  We haven’t tried to provide generic information like that here on the Club’s site, preferring to save our links for Oz-specific topics. But a librarian searching our site offered up links exploring these topics and more that Oz collectors might find helpful.
Why have a blog if you can’t share useful information? Enjoy!

 P.S.  This photo is Bill Beem with some of his Oz collection back in 2000 when he filled display cases at the Oz Club’s Centennial Convention.

    I’m always in collecting mode, Tim, although I have one now that’s not bad. Can you write me directly at Ozisus@aol.com? If not me, perhaps I can find another collector. Jane
