Sir Peter Warren needs your help to conserve his portrait. To help with the funding for this endeavor, the Athenaeum has a new product, a forest green, one size fits all baseball cap with the Athenaeum’s logo embroidered on it.  For this year the proceeds from the sale of the cap go to the conservation of Sir Peter’s portrait.

We are taking orders for the hat until November 3, which should ensure delivery for the 2013 holiday season.  At this time we do not stock the cap; when you order your account will be charged.  Once the caps are in hand they can be picked-up or if you have paid for shipping they will be sent to you.
