A general preservation assessment of the Burton and Palmer photograph collections that comprise 235,000 images in various formats that document the history and culture of the Mobile region and Gulf Coast of Alabama.

With the proposed Preservation Assistance Grant, the University of South Alabama Archives will contract with Etherington Conservation Services for conservator Michael K. Lee to conduct a general preservation assessment of the Wilson C. Burton and Wilber F. Palmer photographic collections, which contain approximately 235,000 images. The assessment will concentrate on two levels of recommendations: 1) short-term improvements to existing conditions of the material; 2) long-term plans for both collections, including complete preservation and storage.
