AUTHOR INFORMATION

MICHELE R. DERRICK graduated from Oklahoma State University in 1979 with an M.S. in analytical chemistry. She joined the Scientific Program of the Getty Conservation Institute in 1983, where she is currently the acting head of the analytical section. Her research involves the development of new methods for the characterization and identification of organic materials in cultural objects, primarily using infrared spectroscopy and pyrolysis gas chromatography. Address: Getty Conservation Institute, 4503 Glencoe Ave., Marina del Rey, Calif. 90292.

ERIC F. DOEHNE graduated from Haverford College with a B.S. degree in geology in 1984. He then completed his M.S. degree in geology at the University of California at Davis in 1987. He joined the Getty Conservation Institute in 1988, where he is currently an associate scientist in the architecture and monuments section. He obtained his Ph.D. in geology from the University of California at Davis in 1994, under the late Stanley V. Margolis. His current research is in the fields of stone conservation and archaeometry. Address: as for Derrick.

ANDREW E. PARKER received a B.S. in biochemistry from California State University, Northridge, in 1990 and has been an intern at the Getty Conservation Institute since 1990. His research focuses on the identification of artists' materials using different analytical techniques and the development of novel sample preparation methods for the radiocarbon dating of cultural objects. Address: as for Derrick.

DUSAN C. STULIK graduated from Charles University, Prague, Czechoslovakia, with B.S. and M.S. degrees in chemistry. He subsequently obtained a Ph.D. in physics from the Czechoslovakia Academy of Sciences. He is currently acting head of the scientific program at the Getty Conservation Institute. His current research is in the application of modern scientific methods in conservation science. Address: as for Derrick.
