Brenham, Pallasite

There’s not much on Brenham in the Meteoritical Bulletin, but I was able to track down this paper describing the excavation of the Brenham crater: The Excavation of a Meteorite Crater Near Haviland, Kiowa County, Kansas, by Nininger and Figgins. Brenham is a fairly well-known meteorite; many other resources are available online.

This 34.2 gram part-slice was mounted in plexiglass and oil by Nininger.  This preparation was devised in order to keep the slice from rusting; Brenham has been known to have some issues with stability.  This slice has been stable for 20+ years, so the experimental display appears to have been a success.
