For several decades, this material was kept in warehouse space used by Grosset & Dunlap, one of the more recent owners of the McLoughlin Bros. publishing name. The artwork and picture books were conserved with funding provided by the Heald Foundation. The picture books and catalogs were cataloged with funding provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the inventory of the drawings and cover art was funded by a grant from an anonymous donor.
