Custodial history

Scope and content

Sous-fonds consists of records documenting the work of the Conservation unit at the Museum of Anthropology (MOA). Material includes correspondence, evaluations, building plans, photographs, slides, reports, teaching material, and other administrative and planning records.

The Conservation sous-fonds is arranged into series based on the records creator/individual Conservators. Because the Conservation unit is minimally staffed, and staff have historically maintained Conservator positions at MOA for many years, the records related to Conservation function are usually connected to single creator. For the smaller portion of the Conservation records that cannot be attributed to a single Conservator, a “General” series has been created.

The Conservation sous-fonds is arranged into the following series:

  1. General
  2. Miriam Clavir

Additional series will likely be added as more Conservation records arrive in the archives.
