The City Clerk is pleased to announce a $5,000 Community Education Grant from the San Antonio Conservation Society has been awarded to the Office of the City Clerk. The grant was awarded to assist with the long-term storage and preservation of the Field Survey Books within the City Engineer and Surveyors’ Collection, which was created in 2007 by the City Clerk. Additionally, a finding aid, outlining the Field Survey Books’ contents, will be created to help users access the collection. The Field Survey Books were recently transferred to the Office of the City Clerk this summer.
“From the detailed notes and meticulous drawings and measurements contained in the leather bound books, the Field Survey Books will provide a unique perspective into the history and development of San Antonio,” said City Archivist Amy Canon.
The collection is available for public access at the Office of the City Clerk, Municipal Archives and Records. To set up an appointment to view the collection, please contact Amy Canon, City Archivist, at (210) 207-4214 or firstname.lastname@example.org
