CCAHA's 40th: An Appalachian Archive

    • CVC Appalachian

2017 marks 40 years of CCAHA. Every Friday, we'll share the articles, photos, and recollections that tell the story of how CCAHA became a world-renowned leader in conservation science.

This article discusses a conservation survey carried out by CCAHA staff in 1989. The Virginia State Library and Archives and the State Historical Records Advisory Board had undertaken a conservation and preservation project that funded 20 surveys. The article states that the collections at the John Wyllie Cook Library at Clinch Valley College had some of the best Appalachian material in southwest Virginia, with objects relating to folklore and genealogy.

Today, CCAHA’s preservation services staff members are undertaking more work in Appalachia through the Regional Heritage Stewardship Program, bringing services to a traditionally underserved and culturally-rich area.
