Preserving the World of Ray Bradbury

A Foundations planning project to preserve and process a collection of papers and memorabilia associated with the writer Ray Bradbury.

The Center for Ray Bradbury Studies houses a lifetime of the author’s literary works, artifacts, library, correspondence, typescripts, photographs, awards and mementos, recordings, and juvenilia, nearly 30,000 pounds of materials in all. Most of these thousands of documents and artifacts are fragile and disordered, requiring the kind of consultation and planning outlined and requested in this grant application. The Center for Ray Bradbury Studies requests HCRR Foundations grant funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities to bring in expert consultants from peer research centers as well as local consultants who will provide guidance in archival accessioning, artifact preservation, database documentation, digital imaging, public outreach, and collections management. A central outcome will be a formal Preservation Plan that will support, describe, and provide guidelines for the project, reported and disseminated through a white paper and future public access to the archive.
