Summary
  • Contains correspondence, memos, lists, publications, receipt forms, and other sundry items documenting the deacidification tests performed on archival records restored by William J. Barrow. The correspondence includes letters to/from Barrow, Randolph W. Church, State Librarian, and William Van Schreeven, State Archivist. This correspondence mostly relates to the degradation of cellulose acetate film used by Barrow to restore archival documents while he was employed by the Virginia State Library
  • In addition to correspondence, there are index cards presumably documenting the restoration of either land or personal property tax books for each county. The various lists in these records also document the restoration of items. Particularly useful are lists of restoration work for the years 1944 & 1945, and 1949 & 1950. The negative photoprints demonstrate images of personal property tax pages before & after deacidification in 1964. Lastly, there are numerous papers & publications from Barrow on the lamination and restoration of records
