Conservation services needed

From: Sidney Berger <spcolseb>
Date: Monday, September 25, 1995
I am negotiating at present for the acquisition of a large number of
architectural drawings, blueprints, and books.  The drawings are
badly in need of conservation work (they are mounted to acidic
boards, many of which are buckling), and they are on fairly acidic
papers.  Can anyone suggest 1) organizations to go to for grants for
the conservation of these materials; 2) names of people or
businesses (preferably in the southern California area) who can do
this kind of work; 3) names of others who have had experience with
such materials?  Thank you.

    **** Moderator's comments:   The Foundation of the American
    Institute for Conservation (FAIC) has a referral service which
    will help you find a conservator in a particular specialty and
    geographic area.
