Support the preservation of the Port of Los Angeles Archives

This is just an image; working links provided in body of post.

Archive Corps, which we blogged about in Archive Corps -- Saving what is in danger of disappearing (14 Sept 2015) sent out an email 25 October 2015 drawing our attention to what may or may not be of some concern about the Port of Los Angeles (CA) Archives.

The email referred readers to Port of Los Angeles Archives in Danger where it’s stated that the Port of Los Angeles Archives are now housed in less-than-hospitable conditions and are at risk of being lost.  Please read the full post for more details on the situation.

For information about the history of the port, a Photo Archive, an Oral History collection (in video format), and more, visit the port’s history page.

Interested in signing the petition, Save the Port of Los Angeles Archives? You can do so here.

Are you familiar with this collection? Is it at-risk as stated?  Did you sign the petition?

What other at-risk collections are you aware of?
