The Historic Preservation Program records focuses on the inner workings of the program including outreach programs and projects, course instruction and final projects by program alumni. Formally established in 1979, materials in the collection are organized into four series: Administration and History; Civic Engagement; Course Instruction and Audio/Visual Materials.
The Course Instruction series includes Final Projects. To complete the program all students must complete an individual preservation project which has ranged from completing a Historic American Building Survey (HABS) or a National Register Nomination to topical papers or case studies. A kin to a Master's thesis, final projects are arranged in the collection by title.
The materials included here are those that were originally submitted digitally. Efforts to scan and make paper based projects available are ongoing.
