Continuing Preservation of the Burton and Palmer Photographic Collections Housed in the University Archives

Funding supports the purchase of environmental monitoring equipment and preservation supplies to improve care of the Wilson C. Burton and Wilbur F. Palmer photographic collections, which together contain 235,000 negatives. These collections document the history and culture of the Mobile, Alabama, area from the 1930s to the 1980s, including the African American experience, the Civil Rights Movement, and the Vietnam era.

This grant will support the purchase of environmental monitoring equipment and preservation supplies needed to fulfill recommendations made in a March 2009 assessment of two large photographic collections. The assessment was funded by a National Endowment for the Humanities Preservation Assistance Grant.
