Rehousing of the Southern Missions Photograph Collection

Funding supports the purchase of preservation supplies to rehouse 106,457 images in the Southern Missions Photograph Collection that document the work of the Society of St. Edmund in the southern United States since 1937 and in a mission in Caracas, Venezuela. The society's main focus is on education, medical care, and social services for African Americans. These supplies are recommended by the consultant who assessed the collection in 2008.

The Saint Michael's College Archives Department will purchase preservation supplies for the collection of photographs known as the Southern Missions Photograph Collection, currently stored off-site in Selma, AL. (The collection is slated to be moved to Saint Michael's College in the fall of 2009). The supplies to be purchased will partially fulfill the recommendations of SOLINET Consultant who performed a preservation assessment of the collection in October 2008. This assessment was funded by an NEH Preservation Assistance Grant. The requested grant will provide a greatly needed launch to the rehousing and relocation of the collection.
