Provenance M.M. Dornbirer, of San Diego, California, found this collection while helping with an estate in that city. Dornbirer is a native Ohioan and believed the items should be returned to Columbus and chose to ship the collection to the Ohio Statehouse.

The Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board took over the care of the Statehouse and its collections in 1988.
