Stabilization of the Hearst Museum of Anthropology's Collection of Audiovisual Media

Native American cultural practices, music and speech, landscapes, villages and houses, food-gathering and preparation, and scenes from archaeological sites are documented in this collection of 19th and 20th century motion picture film, photographic prints, and glass plate negatives, as well as sound recordings on tape, wire, and wax cylinder. The museum will place the recordings and photographs in archival boxes and folders and install a cold vault with shelving and humidity control equipment to house them.
