PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that the Board of Trustees of the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (“NSSAR”) previously authorized the deaccession and repatriation and/or sale by auction of certain artifacts currently in the NSSAR’s possession.
PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE, that in connection with the directive from the Board of Trustees, the NSSAR Museum Board has listed, and reviewed, each of the 569 artifacts from the SAR Museum Collection that will be repatriated or sold at auction. This list identifies each artifact by: category, name, and identification number. A description of the artifact is also included. The list of artifacts that will be repatriated or sold at auction can be accessed at: http://sar.org/deaccession-artifacts
PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE, that the Museum Board is seeking to connect with each artifact’s donor, or a family member if the original donor is deceased, to determine
whether the donor’s (or the donor’s family’s) wishes with respect to the artifact.
PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE, that artifacts not repatriated prior to August 1, 2018, will be sold at auction. A separate notice identifying those artifacts to be sold at auction, and providing the date of such auction, will be available after August 1, 2018. Proceeds from the auction will be allocated for the development and direct care of the SAR Museum Collection.
For additional information or repatriation requests please contact Herman C. Brown, Chairman, SAR Museum Board at firstname.lastname@example.org
