AUTHOR INFORMATION

MARY T. BAKER received her B.S. in chemistry in 1980 and her Ph.D. in 1986 in materials science with a specialty in polymer science from the Institute of Materials Science at the University of Connecticut. She has worked at the Conservation Analytical Laboratory as a research chemist since 1987, collaborating with conservators on projects such as the effects of fumigation on materials; treatment and characterization of coated papers; light bleaching of paper; and methods development for analysis of microsamples of paints, varnishes, and other materials. Her current research is on the modern polymeric materials in air and space artifacts, their aging mechanisms, storage, treatment, and display. Address: Conservation Analytical Laboratory, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C. 20560.

EDWARD MCMANUS is the conservator of the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum. Prior to joining the museum, he was a conservator for the National Park Service, North Atlantic Region. He has been a member of the AIC since 1976. His early experience was with archaeological materials and metals. Mr. McManus's current interest is to foster better collections care for modern materials.
