Preservation of South Dakota Art Museum Archival Collections

The purchase of archival supplies to preserve four of the South Dakota Art Museum's humanities collections consisting primarily of Native American artwork, artifacts, and related archival materials. Located on the campus of South Dakota State University, the museum collects, preserves, and exhibits the state's visual art, while also providing access for research by Native Americans, scholars, university students, and other museums and documentarians.

The South Dakota Art Museum will preserve and protect access to four very important Museum archival collections. The Whitlock Archives consist of still and moving images, daily journals, letters and audio recordings compiled by former BIA agent Claude R. Whitlock who served on the Rosebud and Yakima reservation from 1905-1950.The Goble Archives consist of preliminary drawings, student artwork, first edition and foreign language books by the award winning illustrator and author. His work depicts traditional stores of the Lakota, Cheyenne and Blackfeet people. The Nelson archives contain photographs, notebooks and scrapbooks compiled as part of a research project conducted by Marion J. Nelson (1924-2000) as part of his research on "Art Pottery of the Midwest" exhibit and publication. The archives contain valuable information related to 257 midwest pottery pieces in the Museum collection. The Seiferle archives contain important information related to 202 Native American Museum artifacts.
