Series 11: Project Files, 1953-1985
1.8 linear feet
Box 6-7, 10, OV 11

These files document Packard's commissioned projects and her mural restoration work. Many of the project files contain letters, receipts, notes, artwork, photographs, and printed material. Of particular interest are the files documenting Packard's restoration work with the Coit Tower murals in San Francisco and Anton Refregier's murals at the Rincon Annex Post Office in San Francisco. Several of the mural restoration project files include scattered letters from artists, such as Anton Refregier and Reuben Kadish, photographs of artists, and photographs of the murals prior to and after construction/restoration work.
Materials are arranged in chronological order.
The series has been partially scanned. The cover, title page, and individual relevant pages have been scanned from published materials; slides and negatives have not been scanned. The unpublished sound cassette has been digitized for research access and is available at the Archives of American Art offices.
