In 1960, Sheldon and Caroline Keck, pioneers in the field of art conservation, established the first U.S. conservation training program at New York University. Ten years later, they established a second program in Cooperstown with the State University of New York at Oneonta. Since its founding, the Cooperstown program has accepted 10 students each year into a three-year course of study towards a master of arts degree and certificate of advanced study in art conservation. In 1987, the Cooperstown program, needing larger facilities, relocated to Buffalo State College. This lecture event celebrates the work in conservation education at Cooperstown and Buffalo through the graduates of both programs working at the Library. This lecture is part of a special series commemorating seminal anniversaries of the conservation graduate schools in the U.S.
