What collections would I gather if the Buffalo Bill Center of the West faced imminent danger from a catastrophe--like that ever-present caldera in Yellowstone? I wanted to be at once strategic, logical, thoughtful, and reasonable, not to mention simply saving the objects I particularly like. For example, it might be practical to grab those objects in my office here at the Center as they're--well--right there. I also wondered if a person should try to focus on small objects as they're easier to carry, but then there are those objects that are literally one-of-a-kind that a person should grab first--no matter how large they are. If we assume a truck is parked nearby, the size wouldn't matter. Otherwise, would one use the stagecoach and a wagon to carry objects out of the building?
