Preservation Assessment of the Henry Bacon Papers

A preservation assessment of the papers of the architect Henry Bacon (1866-1924), including his architectural drawings, blueprints, construction photographs, correspondence, and scrapbooks documenting more than eighty commissions throughout the United States. A highlight of the collection is the extensive archives of material on the building of the Lincoln Memorial.

Wesleyan University's project is to commission a professional conservation assessment of the papers of Henry Bacon, the architect of the Lincoln Memorial. This assessment will include a treatment proposal and estimates for preservation work.
