The Camp White Station Hospital Administration Building (Building 200) was constructed in 1942 to house hospital administration uses associated with the development of US Army Camp George A. White in White City, Jackson County, in southern Oregon. White City is an unincorporated community developed on the site of this former US Army training cantonment in the years following the Camp's decommissioning at the end of World War II. The building was converted to the administration building for the Camp White Domiciliary in 1949. Today it still serves an administrative function associated with the 145-acre Department of Veterans Affairs Southern Oregon Rehabilitation Center & Clinics (SORCC) campus. The two-story, brick-clad, Colonial Revival building was designed by noted California architect Myron Hunt based on Army Corps of Engineers plans dated November 1941.

Oregon's State Advisory Committee on Historic Preservation recommended the building's nomination in their June 2016 meeting. It is the only individually listed property in the National Register in White City, but is one of 154 individually listed historic properties in Jackson County. The National Register is maintained by the National Park Service under the authority of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966.

Nominations for the 2017 Sally Donovan Award for Historic Cemetery Preservation, part of the Oregon Heritage Excellence Awards Program, are now being accepted.

This new category in the Oregon Heritage Excellence Awards recognizes an individual, business, or organization for outstanding efforts on behalf of Oregon historic cemeteries, drawing public attention to these efforts, and raising the quality of historic cemetery activities.

Nominations are encouraged for all efforts that lead to the preservation of a historic cemetery or contribute to the preservation of historic cemeteries statewide. Examples may include the establishment of a preservation program, the reclaiming and care of an abandoned cemetery, training others in monument repair, documentation, public education, tools that enhance cemetery preservation, etc.

"The new award is named for Sally Donovan, who developed historic cemetery planning and provided training in monument documentation and repair," said Kuri Gill, Oregon Historic Cemeteries program coordinator. "She brought cemetery preservation to the forefront in this state and personally influenced monument repair in dozens of cemeteries."

Announcement of awardees will be made in early April 2017. Awards will be presented on April 26 at the Oregon Heritage Summit in Newberg by Oregon Heritage, part of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department. Tickets for the awards presentation will be made available this coming spring.

Applications can be found online at www.oregonheritage.org<http://www.oregonheritage.org> or by contacting Kuri Gill at Kuri.Gill at oregon.gov<mailto:Kuri.Gill at oregon.gov> or (503) 986-0685. The postmark deadline for submitting nominations is February10, 2017.

The Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts (CCAHA) added an infographic to their online resources. Mold & Cultural Heritage Collections, produced in partnership with the University of Pennsylvania Libraries, defines key issues and buzzwords associated with mold management for collections. The graphic was made possible thanks to funding from the William Penn Foundation and Independence Foundation.
