MESDA Object Database Search

Important: Do not use quotations marks around search terms.
For best results begin with a broad term (chair). To refine, invert object names (chair, arm). Do not use quotations marks.
Last name first separated by a comma (Shaw, John). If no results try surname only.
Spell out state names (Knoxville, Tennessee). If no results try city or state only.
Important: Use single year date only (1775). Results will include records with that specific year and records with date ranges that include that year (i.e., 1770–1790).
Include prefix and hyphen but (S-4555).
