Conserving the Memorandum Announcing the Titanic Disaster
After conservation treatment, the Daily Memorandum was mounted with a technique commonly used at the National Archives. The document rests on a cotton rag board of known chemical stability. The rag board itself has been adhered to a sheet of acrylic to make it rigid. Folded polyester tabs were used to attach the document to the mount. This mounting system ensures that no adhesive come in contact with the document. The document can be easily removed once it comes off exhibit.
