I apologize if this isn't the appropriate place for this question, but I'm not seeking technical help.

As archivist of the Rutland Herald newspaper in Rutland, VT, I have the responsibility of maintaining the Herald's collection of photographs taken by Aldo Merusi, the paper's photographer from 1937 to 1974. This November we will be celebrating the centennial of Merusi's birth, and have arranged to have an exhibition of his work at the Chaffee Art Center in Rutland. The show will run from Nov. 14, 2008 to January 3, 2009.

Throughout his entire career at the Herald, Merusi used a 4x5 Speed Graphic. I would very much like to display a similar camera, or even a cousin like the Crown Graphic, in the show. Might anyone have such a camera that they would be willing to lend to us for the show, or know of someone who does? The camera would be securely exhibited and credit for the loan would be prominently displayed. Any shipping to and from Vermont would be covered.

Thanks.
