The Florida Museum of Natural Historys Official FEC Movers Guide This packet contains illustrated scale reconstructions of many artifacts from the Florida Museum of Natural Historys (FLMNH) Seminole and Miccosukee Ethnographic Collection. The purpose of these illustrations is to offer guidance in the placement of shelves, drawers and artifacts in a large amount of recently acquired cabinetry, as well as provide a general plan of action for m oving artifacts from the Ethnographic Room to the Special Collections Room at the FLMNH. All object measurements were taken from a precise spatial inventory conducted in 2009, then entered into the 3 dimensional architectural software Google Sketchup 8.0. Measurements for cabinetry and furnishings are based on those provided by Patterson Pope. Not all artifacts are present, as this project was conducted primarily for those that might require spatial adjustments due to their size. Most textiles were not i ncluded, as they will be housed in Rousseau cabinets currently slated for a later arrival. Only those non textiles on loan without any semblance of scale left behind, were excluded. Created by: Austin Bell December 15, 2011

Seminole Wood Items The following images provide storage suggestions for wood and wood composite materials from the Florida Ethnographic Collection Several of the artifacts, such as the mortars, will need add itional clearance height (beyond the standard allotment) between shelves. More problematic are the extra long items, which are prev alent in this group In reality, there will be no div iding wall betw een the two 42x24 cabinets on the right The longer pieces will lay across both sets of shelves, essentially making them 84 long shelves. T hat is why some objects appear to pass through it. The 36x24 unit on the left end can be separated by a dividing wall, as it contains only smaller wood items. Composite View of all Wood Shelves

Seminole Basketry/Palmetto Items The following images provide storage suggestions for baskets and other materials made of either palmetto or sweet grass Some of the tallest items in the collections are baskets, so custo m shelf spacing will be needed. A 42x24 shelving unit with sliding shelves (as opposed to drawers) was selected for these items. Composite View of all Basketry and Palmetto Items

Seminole Dolls The following images provide storage suggestions for the entirety of the Seminole doll collection including the doll making kit and the eight incoming dolls from the Reeves. This plan allows standing room only for the dolls, meaning they will be stored upright, per Gloria s suggestion. T hanks to the height of the dolls, t he 42x24 doll cabinet will require only 6 drawers (5 of the 4 and 1 of the 3 or 6 of the 4 if possible) rather than the standard 10. Free space will be available to squeeze in a few more dolls but it m ight be a good idea to reserve the adjacent column of d rawers for potential doll collection growth. Suggested spacing for shelves can be found in the main image. Individual catalog numbers are found in the specific shelf images. 5 dolls were not illustrated due to being on loan with a lack of available measurements : 2000081, 2000092, 2000 09 3, 2004 204 5, 200619 1 Dolls in 42x24 Cabinet with 6 Drawers

Misc. Non Textile Drawer Seminole Items The following images provide storage suggestions for remaining miscellaneous items that will likely not be stored in the large Rousseau cabinets for textiles None of these items are particularly tall, so the standard spacing of drawers works perfectly This provides an excellent example of how most cabinets will look with normal shelf spacing and 10 drawers. This is a 42x24 unit. Misc. Items in Drawers (R) Adjacent to Dolls (L)
