Coronado Historical Association Collections Care Assessment

Hiring a conservation consultant to conduct an emergency preparedness assessment and preservation assessment of the association's scrapbook collection. The Coronado Historical Association possesses a collection of photographs, manuscripts, paintings, and artists' prints that document the local history of the surrounding San Diego harbor area, including the North Island Naval Air Station, the U.S. Navy SEALs, and the famous Hotel Del Coronado. The scrapbook collection contains 85 linear feet of photographic and mixed-media scrapbooks that date from the early 20th century and cover local topics such as the Coronado Flower Association, Women's Club, Crown Garden Club, and military life.

With the assistance of consultants on the staff of the Balboa Art Conservation Center in San Diego, we will update a prior general preservation (CAP) survey that was completed in 2001, develop a long-range preservation plan for the next ten years, complete a specific assessment of our collection of 317 scrapbooks, and conduct a vulnerability assessment and emergency preparedness plan, including purchasing the necessary supplies to protect the entire collection in case of an emergency or disaster.
