Vignettes for AIC Oral History of Conservation Archives

From: Rebecca A. Rushfield <wittert<-at->
Date: Monday, May 4, 2009
The AIC's Oral History of Conservation program has traditionally
focused its efforts on interviews with senior conservators about
their training and careers. The information transmitted in these
interviews is crucial for the construction of a history of the
field. However, what is often not captured in these interviews are
accounts of meetings and parties and dinners in which glimpses of
the human side of the pioneer men and women of the field can be
seen. For example, do you remember a dinner you had with Rutherford
Gettens or George Stout, or informal discussions with rather more
senior colleagues at the first IIC-AG, AIC, ICOM-CC, or IIC meeting
you attended? You are invited to submit such vignettes for inclusion
in the Oral History of Conservation Archives.

Please send them to Rebecca Rushfield <wittert<-at->juno<.>com> who will
compile them for the FAIC Oral History file housed at the Winterthur
Museum, Library and Archives which now contains the transcripts of
more than 220 interviews about the history of our profession.
