For items dated prior to the MBTA it is necessary to have a legal
paper trail accompanying the item's documenting its history from point
of origin forward. At least that's what was required with any donation
of specimens/mounts etc. to the Vertebrate Museum at Shippensburg
University when I was working there as part of my graduate
assistantship. We currently do the same thing at Dickinson College.
