In 1974, the Winterthur/University of Delaware Program in Art
Conservation (WUDPAC) accepted its first graduate class of six
students towards a masters of science in the conservation of
artistic and historic objects.  With the graduation of the Class of
2014, the program has produced 364 conservators.

WUDPAC graduates have, in turn, taught and continue to teach
conservators and conservation leaders active today as well as the
next generation of conservators.  Several conservators at the
Library of Congress are graduates of WUDPAC and the Library's
Conservation Division has, since the 1970s, consistently hosted
WUDPAC students for their final-year internship before graduating.
Of the four speakers for the program, three completed their
internships in the Library of Congress Conservation Division.

This TOPS program marks the fourth and final in a series started in
2010 to commemorate significant anniversary years of the U.S.
conservation graduate programs that teach library and archive
