Dale,

Even though you're working with typewritten copies, that old paper will get brittle and deteriorate.  I just remembered that UV rays will cause ink to fade, so maybe you should try to keep them away from direct sunlight.  I saw a program on the History Channel about the Declaration of Independence.  One of the signed copies was framed and hung on a wall near a window.  The ink faded and there's not much left to read now.

No, I'm not a professional historian.  If I were, I wouldn't have time to read all those history books that I love!

So I guess I'm a passionate historian.  Hm.
