Conservation archives in UK

The European Commission currently has a project to document the
careers of conservators and to list the location of conservation
archives.  Most public institutions have documented conservation
interventions in recent decades, but information about the
conservators themselves is less likely to have been recorded.  If
you know the whereabouts of collections of any of the following
types of record please post here and contact Andrew Oddy
