According to the National Archives, 70° Fahrenheit is the preferred temperature that is optimal for the preservation of artifacts in exhibition spaces. It is the degree in which archival materials should be protected for long-term conservation. As curators, we assist you with crafting your narrative. We offer archival, preservation, exhibition, design and editing services. In this digital age, we fuse humanities with technology.


We create and manage archives according to the best practices established by the Society of American Archivists and the Society of California Archivists. We arrange materials and make them digitally accessible using ABBYY® FineReader® Sprint Plus OCR technology. 

We use the Getty Research Institute‘s best practices. We facilitate oral history interviews in order to conserve the past according to Oral History Association & Southwest Oral History Association standards. We use California Preservation Foundation guidelines. 

We research, design, and install exhibits. We have the ability to create an exhibit for your institution using National Council on Public History, American Association for State and Local History, and The American Alliance of Museums practices.

We maintain The Chicago Manual of Style, Modern Language Association (MLA), and AP Style Book writing standards. We use Adobe Creative products to produce unique designs. We create new websites for organizations which include social media accounts.

“Founder emeritus of the Crystal Cove Conservancy, Laura Davick, has generously donated her archives to be part of the Orange County Regional History Collection in the UCI Libraries’ Special Collections & Archives Department. As a third generation “Coveite,” or resident of Crystal Cove, Ms. Davick’s collection includes photographs, oral histories, and ephemera, which document 100 years of Crystal Cove’s history.” 70 Degrees has been digitizing this collection and preparing a finding aid for the community to access this remarkable collection.

Visit the O.C. museum that we established with the Moulton family in 2022. We curated the opening exhibits as the Museum Directors.

70 Degrees has been collaborating with the Moulton family since 2017. They once owned Rancho Niguel in Orange County with 21,723 acres. Moulton Ranch is now expanded into other parts of California where annual roundups with a branding take place and partner with the California Rangeland Trust. 70 Degrees curated the opening exhibits of Moulton Museum which were 1874: Into the West and the Art of Nellie Gail Moulton.

Nellie Gail Moulton’s World Travel Photography is a retrospective of her experiences which took place from 1908-1960. This is the first exhibit of Nellie Gail Moulton photography. She was part of the California Camera Club. It is through the lens that the viewer is taken on a journey not only to the past, but also to be able to see what Nellie saw, to experience an itinerary that cannot be duplicated in the present day. This exhibit is curated by Cindy Keil, Jennifer Keil, and Eric Stoner.
