Dear Commissioners & Executive Director Seroka,
We the undersigned call on the Los Angeles Harbor Commission and the Port of Los Angeles to immediately take action to ensure the long-term preservation of the historic documents in your care, which in early 2015 were moved from their climate-controlled archival storage building to open dockside warehouses, where they are rapidly deteriorating due to the presence of high humidity, insect infestation and feral cats. We also call on you to reinstate scholarly and public access to this priceless historic material, and to bring on qualified staff members to manage and care for the archives.
