SPNHC affiliated people documented in the collection include Suzanne MacLaren, Judith Price, Lisa Palmer, Linda Hollenberg, Carolyn L. Rose, and Paisley S. Cato. Particularly well documented is the SPNHC publication, Storage of Natural History Collections: Ideas and Practical Solutions, 1992, which was funded by a grant from the Institute for Museum Services.
