Iwo Jima Rubber Relief Map Returns to Battleship

Record #:
The battleship North Carolina has had a WWII rubber relief map on loan since 1967. After noticeable deterioration of the rubber, battleship staff commissioned East Carolina University's Program in Maritime Studies, which has a conservator on staff. The map was treated over a six month period and placed in an oxygen-free environment to slow deterioration.
