Heritage Organizations

This series consists of records created and accumulated by Herb Stovel during his time working for various heritage organizations in a professional and volunteer capacity.

The series includes records related primarily to the following heritage organizations: the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) International and ICOMOS Canada, the International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM), the Heritage Canada Foundation (HCF), the Ontario Heritage Foundation, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Parks Canada, and the Association of Preservation Technology International (APT).

Due to the varied nature of Stovel’s activities, there is not always a clear distinction between the organizations, and some of the sub-series overlap.
