“Carl Montford, a local wood engraver and proprietor of the private Montford Press, was a tremendous help. His passion for the collection and for placing it at an academic institution ignited efforts at Pacific Lutheran and at Puget Sound to find space large enough to hold the collection,” according to Russell. “Happily, those efforts paid off.” On January 24th and 25th, the bulk of the collection was moved into The School of Arts + Communication in Ingram Hall at Pacific Lutheran University and a few pieces were moved into the Collins Memorial Library at The University of Puget Sound.
Events and opportunities for staff, students, and the public to view and work with the collection are being planned by Pacific Lutheran University and will be announced in spring 2017.
