In December 2000, Stephanie Watkins, Head of Paper Conservation, was named a Fellow of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (AIC). This is the highest professional membership level that can be bestowed upon members and is based upon the recommendations of current Fellows. The honor signifies that the recipient has made valuable contributions to conservation through education, training, publication, research, and technical skill. Stephanie brings conservation experience in art, manuscript and archive collections to her work. She has extensive expertise with drawing, painting, and printmaking media, adhesives and "sticky" tapes, paper manufacture, and paper-based photographs among other areas. Stephanie has worked at the Center for almost three years and we are proud to have her as a colleague.
