Conserving a Family Archive

When April Chatman-Royce’s grandmother gave her a collection of family documents—photographs, books, and patents—she didn’t know where to begin. A friend told her about the Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts (CCAHA). This film tells the story of the treatment of her family archive, from the initial accession appointment to the final pickup.
