Appalachian Mountain Club (Boston, MA 02129-3740)
Rebecca Maxwell Fullerton (Project Director: January 2019 to present)
Moving Mountains: Rehousing the Appalachian Mountain Club's Historic Outdoor Recreation and Conservation Archives

The project will focus on Appalachian Mountain Club’s (AMC’s) Library & Archives Special Collections and Institutional Records. These materials range from outdoor photography from the 1870s onward, manuscript collections of outdoorspeople of the 19th through the 21st centuries, and complete business records of America’s oldest outdoor recreation and conservation organization. Our primary and secondary source materials document over 140 years of the wilderness experience in the United States through the lens of history, writing, visual arts and culture. Our specific goal within this project to is to continue to upgrade our storage capabilities to meet modern standards of preservation by incorporating high density shelving. The project moves to continue upgrading our storage systems following a move of our Library & Archives from our organization’s headquarters in Boston at the end of 2018 to the heart of the White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire.
