Each year at the annual conference of the Canadian Association for
Conservation of Cultural Property (CAC), we have a keynote speech
known as the Per Guldbeck memorial lecture. The topic of these
lectures generally deals with the development of, and changes in,
the conservation profession over the years. The transcript of the
Per Guldbeck lecture is published in the June edition of our
quarterly publication, the CAC Bulletin, each  year following the
conference. Perhaps these would be useful reading for your paper?
