2329 Project CALM

Conservation Attention for Libraries of Mississippi is a preservation program developed by a University of Iowa Librarian, Gary Frost. He is restoring and preserving many of the irreplaceable artifacts, photographs and documents from the home (now a museum and library) of Jefferson Davis, the only President of the Confederate States of America. Davis was also a U.S. Senator and Secretary of War. Later this year Frost expects to help restore documents from the Biloxi Public Library also damaged by Katrina. Story here.
