Richmond Museum of History Environmental Monitoring Equipment & Training Project

The Richmond Museum of History seeks preservation assistance to implement an environmental monitoring program and create better storage conditions for local newspapers. The project would support purchasing IPI PEM2 environmental monitors and archival quality storage boxes for local newspapers currently stacked on open shelving without protection. The goal of both tasks is to improve storage conditions and facilitate long term preservation of museum collections. The permanent collection of the Richmond Museum of History is comprised of significant materials dating from prehistory, early industrial development on the shores of the San Francisco, a strong collection of World War II Home Front and Richmond Kaiser Shipyards related materials and a growing segment of postwar/civil rights history. The collection is a significant source of primary sources related to the development of industry in the SF Bay Area, the Great Migration of the 1940s, and the progression of the Civil Rights.
