Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 1, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE fl The ivoMs largest attic at Toronto TOIiONTO (CPl Some of the Hems on display at the Royal Ontario Museum Eire workl-fanioiis. But it IKW pleniy of treasures hidden away -and to some of tiie staff they should stay that way. Tl-c museum itself, famous for it-s Oriental items, stands in mid-town Toronto among buildings of the University of Toronto. Some distance away, in a nondescript industrial plaza, it has square feet of warehouse for tilings it hasn't room to show. Looking through the un- marked warehouse is like r u m m a g i n g through Use world's largest attie. It con- tains pieces ranging from tlw iron grill-work of. a European castle to crates of prehistoric mice teelh. "For 20 jxors the question of space has been vital; now it's said museum director Peter Swann.

There was also some excess material de- scribed as the "mistakes" ot previous curators or collec- tor's items that turned out to be fads. Sometimes these can be sold anonymously or per- haps traded off to oilier insti- tutions. THORNY PROBLEM One thorny problem is the bequest of pieces from private donors who cherished the arti- cles more than the receiver. Although the museum's standard gift form stipulates the ROM can "dispose" of gifts it cannot use, officials say some donors can get so sticky after signing an item over thai Hire museum will never dispose of a piece with- out the giver's consent. "Dispose1' usually means sell, with the proceeds going to buy another piece which is displayed in the donor's name. llorry Hickel-Hzobo, curator of the European department, said many donors of unusable goods arc like the grand- mother who gave tire kids a train three years ago. It may have been tossed in a closet but grandmother still asks on her visits if they are still playing with "that lovely train." Thus the museum is sonic- times forced to acquire things it does not cannot dispose get live things it does want. LEFT IN HUFF Mr. Hickel-Szabo recalled the woman who came to sell a large number of pieces from her estate. She wanted for the lot. The curator of- fered that sum just for the few pieces that interested him. The woman refused and left in a huff. Later she returned and offered the pieces he wanted for he would agree to take other pieces as well.
