Custodial History

From circa 1974 until 2015, these plates were displayed in wooden cabinets in the second floor west dining room of the UNO Milo Bail Student Center. During a 2015 building renovation the collection was removed and placed in storage. During the summer of 2015 MBSC staff decided to transfer them to University Archives.

A label included with this collection reads: Cabinets and Plate Collection Bequeathed to the University of Nebraska at Omaha In Memory of Emil J. Hansen and Alma Hansen by Helen F. Hansen – Class of 1913 1973

A label is attached to the back of each plate: Marianne K. Festersen Collector's Plates, 701 N. 72nd Ave., 402-393-4454, Omaha, Neb. The display cabinets that were purchased with funds from this donation have been lost.
