Just a quick response to the problem of deaccession. I worried about this too when I was considering donating Hoosier Boy memorabilia that belonged to my family. So, I put my own clause into the agreement with the museum. If they wanted the things (and they did), then they had to agree that if deaccession was ever deemed appropriate for any of my items, the item in question would have to be offered back to me -- or to my closest heir -- before anything could be done with it. Of course, that could open up a whole other set of problems, but I felt like it was one more level of protection for the artifacts. Some items I just do "long term loans," which they don't love, but will accept if they really want the item. Just my one and a half cents.......
