A conservation assessment of eighteen scrapbooks containing photographs, letters, clippings, and ephemera that document the activities of an independent liberal arts college for women from 1901 to 1947.

The project will use a professional document conservator to visit the Barnard College Archives to conduct a treatment assessment of 18 archival scrapbooks. Total collection is 27; the other 9 were previously examined in 2004. Contents include photographs, handwritten letters, clippings, and ephemera documenting the academic and social culture at Barnard from 1901-1947; intercollegiate activities; social movements such as women's suffrage; and women's service during WWI and WWII. The conservator will spend up to 2.5 days on site, measuring, analyzing, and evaluating the scrapbooks. S/he will spend 1 day writing a conservation assessment report that will support future grant proposals for the conservation and microfilming of the scrapbooks.
