My other thought would be to check and make sure you're adding these files to /plugins/local/frontend as well. /public only sets it up for the public site, so if you're going to your staff site it will still show the ArchivesSpace default. -k

Thanks, Kevin! (And nice logo.)
Yes, I checked that. I also thought maybe there were permissions issues
with my logo.png file and my _branding.html.erb files, but have checked
and they are fine. Finally, seeing that your directory tree does not
include the intermediary /my_archive/ directory I figured that's just an
unneeded convention, so I copied my file down a directory and edited
_branding.html.erb to point to the new location. Reboot ArchivesSpace
-- and still nothing! Thinking...
