Fairbanks Historical Records Preservation Project

A preservation assessment of the official records repository for Fairbanks, Alaska. Materials pre-date the establishment of Alaska as a territory in 1912 and include original ordinances, city incorporation charters (1903), resolutions, city council meeting minutes, maps and survey reports, court records, photographs, and birth and death certificates documenting the early establishment and growth of Fairbanks and its emergence as a center for mining, trade, and energy industry development.

A general preservation assessment of the historical records of the City of Fairbanks. A short-, medium-, and long-term report of priorities will be developed by a professional preservation consultant based on an assessment in the areas of environmental control, emergency preparedness, security, and housekeeping, as well as storage, handling, exhibition, reformatting, rebinding and conservation treatment of materials.
