Arrangement and description of the Norman Rockwell Archival Collection, containing correspondence, business records, ephemera, and the contents of Rockwell's art studio.

Norman Rockwell Museum seeks funding for arrangement, description, and development of a collection level finding aid and accompanying record group structure for the largest, most comprehensive archival collection of 20th C. American artist Norman Rockwell (1894-1978). The proposed project will improve access to the extant archival holdings and plan for its long-term management. Funding will support: 1.) refinement of the arrangement and description of the collection to professional archival standards; 2.) development of a collection-level finding aid and accompanying record group structure for the collection at-large; 3.) processing of fan mail correspondence (30 cubic feet), business correspondence (52 cubic feet), and assorted unprocessed periodicals (estimated 25 cubic feet); and 4.) creation of a standard practice manual, including a collecting and accessioning protocol which will provide consistent collection management, regardless of staffing changes.
