Default Alden Hamilton cloth essay

Many years ago Alden Hamilton (Black Cross Military) wrote a very academic piece on wool cloth preservation. I don't know what I've done with it (buried deep in many boxes). Does anyone have a copy of this? I will need it for insurance claim on smoke damaged items from my collection.
Thank you

I didnít want to pester him. Plus I asked him for a copy years ago and if I recall, he couldnít dredge it out. But youíre right. Iíll try again

I have not seen that article in a long time. I thought I had saved it. I looked through my conservation materials, and I can not find it either. I checked his website briefly, and I did not see any past posting on it either.

Thanks for the effort Paul. Iíll find it eventually. While thinking about it I think Bob Treend MAY have reprinted it in an issue of Der Gauleiter. Iím going to have to dig through my boxes.

I have it but it but it is not a good copy with some text drop off on the right margin. I think that Alden snail mailed it to me about 25 years ago for some reason. Would you like for me to scan it and email it to you?
