    John Scott is expert in the examination, investigation,
    preservation and restoration of fine art, especially sculpture,
    and provides analytical services to colleagues in related fields
    including  architectural preservation. John will discuss his
    investigation and conservation  of two wonderful cast plaster
    figural bas-reliefs created in the 1890s by  sculptors Herbert
    Adams and Olin L. Warner for their commission for the Library of
    Congress' main bronze entryways, artworks  now in the collection
    of New York City's Department of Education. After conservation,
    these beautiful and important artworks will be exhibited
    permanently in the  Metropolitan Museum of Art. John will also
    describe the New-York Microscopical  Society's microscopy
    laboratory, which is now ready for members to use at Evergreens
    in Montclair, NJ. John has used the laboratory in conducting his
    microscopical analysis of the Adams-Warner sculptures' structure
    and materials, including original and later finishes.
