Federal regulations require the U.S. Army to investigate, evaluate, and recover data and material from historic properties that could be affected by Civil Works undertakings. The historic preservation process does not end with the recovery and interpretation of archeological and historical data, but includes long-term curation and management of collections and associated documentation. This study was commissioned by the Fort Drum Directorate of Public Works DPW to help its Environmental Division curate the Forts extensive archeological collection. The study included a literature review, interviews and consultation, visits to other collections, a survey of the Fort Drum collection, and testing of solutions to curation challenges found at Fort Drum. This study provided the Forts Natural and Cultural Resources Branch with the technical information to transform a World War II B-74 barracks building into a curation facility and to develop a collections management plan for the archeological collections at Fort Drum to serve as a model for other federal collections.
