Nebraska: Museum organization
Size: 3.0 cu.ft.; 3 boxes
The first organizational meeting of the Nebraska Museums Conference was held in 1958 in Lincoln. It was attended by sixty-seven individuals from twenty-seven institutions around the state. Annual meetings were held every year, and in 1968 the Conference decided to officially incorporate under the laws of the State of Nebraska. The Conference eventually changed its name to the Nebraska Museums Coalition but continued to hold annual meetings, as well as hold programs and offer training around the state. By the early 1980s the Coalition was facing financial difficulties and was forced to disband.
