paper. Each will begin between July 1 and September 15, 2001, and
may be extended up to three years.  The applicant should be a
graduate of a recognized conservation training program or have
equivalent experience. Each Fellow will examine, conduct research
and perform treatment on objects typically ranging in date from
Medieval through contemporary and will be expected to participate in
preservation activities throughout the Museum.

$3,500 travel supplement.  Applicants should send a letter with a
