Hunt on disaster preparedness for historical places
Rebecca Hunt, Senior Instructor in History, pointed out to Colorado Springs Gazette in a recent interview that several initiatives exist to help staffs of museums, libraries and archives with disaster planning, evacuation and restoration. She talked about the Center of Preservation Research at CU Denver, which puts together faculty teams from various disciplines to help document historic towns and ranches, and has helped with damaged historic properties affected by recent floods. Says Hunt, "We are entering an age of climate uncertainty and we have to plan ahead."
