AUTHOR INFORMATION

ARNO P. SCHNIEWIND is professor of forestry, emeritus, at the University of California, Berkeley. He holds a Ph.D. in wood technology from the University of Michigan and has been associated with the University of California Forest Products Laboratory since 1956. His research and teaching have dealt with the mechanical behavior of wood and wood-based materials, and since 1982 he has been active in the application of wood science to the conservation of wood artifacts. He was recently editor of the quarterly journal Wood and Fiber Science. Address: University of California, Forest Products Laboratory, 1301 S. 46th St., Richmond, Calif. 94804.

PETER Y. EASTMAN is assistant furniture conservator at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. After receiving a B.A. in political science from Swarthmore College, he worked as a furniture restorer and conservator in Berkeley, California, for over a decade. In the fall of 1990 he entered the M.S. program in wood science and technology at the University of California, Berkeley, and was employed at the Forest Products Laboratory as a graduate student researcher, working with Arno P. Schniewind, until 1992. He has completed his course work and is writing his M.S. thesis. Address: Philadelphia Museum of Art, P.O. Box 7646, Philadelphia, Pa. 19101.
