Formatted Abstract/Summary

Since the early nineteenth century, photographs have provided a historical record and a source of information about their times. For this reason, art galleries, museums, archives, libraries, historical societies as well as government, business and private individuals all have an interest in the preservation and restoration of photographs. Through the years there has been relatively little factual information published on this subject. As a result, while there are some conservators who know a great deal about photographic conservation, there are many custodians of collections who have little knowledge or experience with photographic materials and processes and how they affect the lifetime of a photographic image. Similarly, they have no knowledge of the techniques and procedures that can be used to preserve or restore photographs.

In recent years there has been concern over the image stability of photographs, particularly that of color photographs. Sharing that concern and to meet the information needs of photographic conservators, Eastman Kodak Company has brought together in this publication the best information it can offer on the photographic image, both black-and-white and color, and the factors that determine its stability. In a chapter devoted to color images, the company states its position on their stability as well as its procedure for testing the stability of its color products. Information is also included in the publication on collection management and restoration of deteriorated images.

In preparing this publication, Eastman Kodak Company drew upon the expertise of many individuals and institutions both inside and outside the company. Mr. George T. Eaton served as author of the publication. He was formerly a research chemist at Eastman Kodak Company where he was involved in the field of photographic processing chemistry. While he was with Kodak, Mr. Eaton served as an assistant division head in the Research Laboratories.    …………………………………..
