TOMOYASU SAKUNO was born on May 5, 1939. He received his Bachelor's degree in Agriculture in 1962 at Tottori University and earned his Ph.D. in Agriculture in Kyoto University in 1977. His doctoral dissertation was “Studies on Fracture of Wood Glue Joints under Impact Shear Load.” He has worked at the Wood Research Institute of Kyoto University (1962–64), Shimane University (1964–73) and Tottori University (1973 to present). In 1985–86 he was a visiting professor at the Forest Products Laboratory, University of California at Berkeley. He is presently a forestry science professor in the Faculty of Agriculture of Tottori University, Japan. His main field of study is wood gluing and physical and chemical processing of wood. Address: Faculty of Agriculture, Tottori University, Koyama, Tottori, 680 Japan.

ARNO P. SCHIEWIND was trained as a cabinetmaker in Munich, Germany before coming to the United States. He studied wood technology at the University of Michigan, where he received B.S., M.W.T., and Ph.D. degrees. He joined the University of California, Forest Products Laboratory in 1956. He is Professor of Forestry, teaching courses in mechanical behavior of wood and wood-based materials to undergraduate and graduate students. His research has traditionally focused on wood mechanics, but in 1982 he met Dale Kronkright, who got him interested in the application of wood science to the conservation of wood artifacts. Address: Forest Products Laboratory, University of California at Berkeley, College of Natural Resources, 1301 South 46th Street, Richmond, California 94804.
