Descriptive Entry:
The bulk of these records document periodic "gallery checks" of the collections in each gallery space. The objects were examined in situ for evidence of deterioration, damage, or need for cleaning. Each worksheet records the condition of one object. There may be several checks over time recorded on one sheet.

The sheets contain the following information: the artist, title (of the object), accession number, location (gallery), date (examined), by whom, condition/damage, repair (action taken), and date (of repair). The last two headings regarding repair are usually blank. The conservation laboratory notes and object files record any repairs to the object.

In addition to the gallery checks are statistical reports regarding yearly accessions to the collection. There are also two files for the following: lecture files for Fanfare (Fans from the 18th Century-20th Century) Parts I, II, & III [Exhibition, Renwick Gallery, 2/17/1984-7/8/1985] and Celebrate America (book). The last two files were created and maintained by Lenore B. Fein, Museum Registration Specialist.

Materials include "gallery check" worksheets, statistical reports, correspondence, memoranda, checklists, research notes, and related records.
