Finding Aid, Blue Springs Lake Project 1983-1985


This collection is referred to as “Blue Springs Lake Project 1983–1985.” This name is consistent throughout the finding aid, file folders, and box labels. The extent of this collection is seventeen (17) linear inches.

The documents in this investigation include paper and photographic documents categorized as Field, Analysis, and Report Records. The Field Records include field notebooks, feature forms with hand drawn feature maps, and unit and block level summary forms. Photographic materials, such as negatives, proofs, slides, and prints, with associated photographic record logs are also present within this series. Flotation data forms, discarded, unworked stone data sheets, and projectile point and chipped stone tool lists are included within the Analysis Records Series. The final report for this investigation is the sole document comprising the Report Records Series.

The original condition of the contents of this investigation was assessed as good. Although the majority of the field documents, including notebooks and level and summary forms, and flotation analysis forms were soiled, water stained, or otherwise minimally damaged, the remaining documents were received in good shape. The soiled documents were dirt stained and had a negligible amount of rodent chewing and tears. Surface dirt was removed from these records using a document cleaning sponge, Absorene, or erasers. Tears were mended with mending tissue, while tape was removed using a heated spatula. Any folds in the documents were flattened using a bone tool.
