Getty Foundation, reports submitted by recipients of conservation grants

Scope and Content of Collection

The records consist of reports made up of correspondence, technical reports, surveys, architectural drawings, publications, technical drawings and specifications, black-and-white and color photographic documentation (prints and slides), CD-ROMs, video, and floppy disks, dating 1986-2011, submitted to the Getty Foundation by recipients of conservation grants for the purpose of documenting the progress and results of their grant-funded projects. The reports in this collection are a carefully vetted subset of all final reports submitted to the Getty Foundation; they have been reveiwed by Foundation staff for the presence of confidential information. The reports provide evidence of the conservation work accomplished nationally and internationally through the use of Getty funds. Types of grant-funded projects include survey and treatment grants to help museums analyze and assess the conservation requirements of their collections, grants to support the planning and implementation of architectural conservation projects, grants to preserve cultural heritage resources in New Orleans, Los Angeles, and on university campuses. The reports frequently include scientific analyses, condition and conservation surveys, detailed descriptions of the sites or objects, photographic documentation, and summaries and conclusions.


The records are in grant number order; the numbers appear to have been assigned chronologically by fiscal year. The projects have been intellectually sub-grouped by the year listed in the number. Please note that the year of the grant approval does not necessarily match the year listed in the project number because the fiscal year and the calendar year are different.

The individual items resulting from each grant project are listed after the project identification information. The physical arrangement of accession 1999.IA.01 matches the intellectual arrangement of the records. The reports in all later accessions have not been physically organized and do not mirror the intellectual arrangement.
