Preserving the Edward L. Daugherty Architectural Drawings Collection

The purchase of storage equipment and preservation supplies for the drawings and project documentation produced by landscape architect Edward Daugherty, designer of over 1,200 commercial and residential landscapes in the southeastern United States as well as Germany. The project would address the society's most urgent rehousing need and would lay the foundation for processing and digitizing selected drawings.

The Atlanta Historical Society, Inc. proposes a Preservation Assistance Grant of $6,000 to support the purchase, delivery, and installation of four sets of five-drawer flat files to house landscape architectural jobs produced by celebrated landscape architect Edward L. Daugherty. In addition, grant funds will be used to purchase 300 oversized folders to preserve drawings in the collection. So the collection may be entirely re-housed, the Kenan Research Center will provide a $7,500 match to purchase four additional sets of five-drawer flat files and 900 oversized folders.
