This collection is referred to as “Stockton Lake Survey and Wimmer Collection 1992–1993.” This name is consistent throughout the finding aid, the file folders, and the box labels. The extent of this collection is two (2.0) linear inches.

The documents in this collection include paper and electronic documents categorized as Administrative, Field, Analysis, and Report Records. The Administrative Records contain correspondence from the Wimmer family, Historic Preservation Associates, and the Stockton Lake Project office. The Field Records contain site forms, maps, notes, and sketches that were created during Howard R. Wimmer’s collection of surface materials between 1984 and 1992. The Analysis Records series contains a single catalog card from a soil sample. The final report for this investigation is the sole electronic document comprising the Report Records Series. Due to the fact that the final report was not originally present, this document was obtained through the Defense Technical Information Center’s website ( and integrated into the investigation.

The original condition of the contents of this investigation were assessed as fair to good. Although the majority of the field documents were soiled, water stained, crumpled, or otherwise minimally damaged, the remaining documents were received in good shape. Surface dirt was removed from these records using a document cleaning sponge, Absorene, or erasers. Metal contaminants were removed from site forms, and any folds in the documents were flattened using a bone tool.

The documents were originally found in artifact boxes and bags associated with an artifact investigation titled Stockton Lake Survey and Wimmer Collection 1992–1993. The documents were organized by record series, and the field records were further separated by county. Within each folder, documents were organized by site or isolated find number and chronological date.

It should be noted that the majority of the paper documents were labeled “Howard Wimmer Collection, DACW41-92-C-0072” in black ink and included the associated site number or isolated find number. It is unknown if this designation was created by Historic Preservation Associates or by the previous repository, University of Missouri. Most of the sketches associated with the notes seem to be made by Howard Wimmer documenting the location of sites and/or artifacts. A majority of the handwritten notes are difficult to discern. Although the project’s work spanned from 1992 to 1993, the inclusive dates of this document collection’s records extend from 1984 to 1999, as field collection began in 1984 by Howard Wimmer, and a note about a field note that was copied dates to 1999. It is also important to note that the project is directly associated with the Stockton Lake Survey and Assessment 1992–1993 investigation, which share the same contract number, DACW41-92-C-0072.

In addition, Klinger and others (1993) state that Historic Preservation Associate’s work, in connection with the Wimmer collections, was limited exclusively to analysis. With the exception of other field work in the general area in 1992, the contractor conducted no field work at the sites investigated by Wimmer.
