Co-workers ask me why I wear cool purple gloves when I work with photographic materials. The perspiration, acids, and oils from our hands can and will damage the photographic materials, as you can see in the image above (left & right). I’ve been working with archival and museum materials for many years and know where not to touch photos, but I still always wear nitrile gloves.

Doughnut sales help university acquire Ken Kesey archive | ArchiveGrid Blog
Sales at VooDoo Doughnut in Portland and Eugene of this colorful, lemon cream-filled doughnut called the “Easy Peasey Lemon Kesey” help the University of Oregon’s Knight Library raise money to buy the Ken Kesey collection. Right now the collection is at UO and worth at least $2 million.
Kesey is a native Oregonian, graduated from UO, and the film based on one of his most well-known works, “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” was shot in Oregon. UO wants to permanently house Kesey’s archive of letters, manuscripts, and artwork and his family has given the school first shot at purchasing it. UO has responded with a fundraising effort to avoid losing the collection.
