Bill Rose and I wrote a history of preventive conservation published
in somewhat adumbrated form as

    J.P. Brown and William B. Rose.
    "Humidity and moisture in historic buildings: the origins of
    building and object conservation"
    APT Bulletin, 27/3 (1996), 12-24

I have a considerably revised and expanded version available as a
word document and can email it to you if you wish.

    **** Moderator's comments: The document has been added to
    Conservation OnLine

    Brown, Jonathan P. and Rose, William B.
    Development of humidity recommendations in museums and moisture
        control in buildings
    APT Bulletin, 27/3 (1996), 12-24. Revised version 1997
