    Abstract

    The field of historic preservation has become a well-defined discipline to which many architectural firms now devote either their entire, or a high percentage of their practice. Few, however, have trained full-time architectural conservators on staff to address the issues related to conservation of architectural materials. The paper begins with a discussion of the development of architectural conservation in the United States, and then focus on the role of full-time architectural conservators in an architectural firm that specializes in historic preservation.
