Textile-based objects are some of the most fragile and vulnerable within historic collections. The preservation and care of these objects demand an understanding of how and why they deteriorate and how to best preserve them. By the end of this workshop, attendees will understand the fundamental principles of textile care and preservation - from object handling and proper display and storage techniques, to choosing appropriate archival materials and identifying agents of deterioration. Workshop instructor Kathleen Daly has a B.S. from Oregon State University in Merchandising and Management with a Historic and Cultural Studies option and an M.A. in Fashion and Textiles Studies: History, Theory and Museum Practice from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. She has over ten years of experience working with museum collections.

The Willamette National Cemetery in Portland, Oregon is among Oregon's latest entries in the National Register of Historic Places.

The 1950 Willamette National Cemetery is located approximately 10 miles southeast of Portland in Clackamas and Multnomah Counties, Oregon. Situated along Mt. Scott Boulevard, the 307-acre cemetery provides scenic views of four mountains, the City of Portland, and the Columbia and Willamette Rivers.

The Willamette National Cemetery was the first national cemetery in the northwest United States, followed by the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific (Honolulu, HI) and Puerto Rico National Cemetery (Bayamon, PR). Though authorized by Congress in 1941, the cemetery's development was delayed by the onset of World War II. After the war, the establishment of new national cemeteries was necessary to accommodate the growing veteran population.  With burials beginning in 1951, Willamette National Cemetery contained 151,043 interments as of June 2012.

The National Park Service has stated that all National Cemeteries are to be considered eligible for listing in the National Register "as a result of their Congressional designation as nationally significant places of burial and commemoration." Willamette National Cemetery is one of two in Oregon. The second cemetery, Eagle Point National Cemetery, is significant in part for its historic association with Camp White, a World War II-era military training center in Jackson County. The Eagle Point National Cemetery was recommended for listing in the National Register by the Oregon State Advisory Committee on Historic Preservation in their February 2016 meeting.
