County of Mohave (Kingman, AZ 86401-5711)
Robert Wayne Ballard (Project Director: April 2017 to present)

Mohave County, Arizona: Detailed Storage Planning, Environmental Upgrades and Training

Development of a detailed storage plan and environmental monitoring for 1,873 linear feet of historical materials from six departments in Mohave County, Arizona.  The county is the home of the Native American Mohave, Kaibab-Paiute, and Hualapai Tribes, the Grand Canyon, the Arizona Strip, Davis Dam, the London Bridge, parts of the Mojave Desert, wilderness areas, and ghost towns.  Collections illustrate pre-statehood, immigration, ranching, mining, water rights, polygamist settlement, and construction of Route 66 and the Hoover Dam.  The consultant would also provide training in collections care, preventive conservation, storage planning, and environmental monitoring for local cultural institutions and city government staff.  The activities proposed were recommended in a 2017 assessment.

Mohave County, Arizona, requests $6,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities in the category of Preservation Assistance Grants to conduct detailed storage planning, environmental upgrades, and preservation training for Mohave County's historical and permanent collections of approximately 1873 linear feet. A conservator will conduct onsite training and work with staff to develop a detailed storage plan. The grant activities will provide us the opportunity to work with Mohave County departments and community partners to understand the preservation requirements for significant and historical records, improve environmental conditions, and begin planning our long-term goal of a shared climate-controlled storage facility.
