Would any conservation program have accepted her as a student?

Dr. Miriam Clavir, conservator emerita of the University of British Columbia Museum of Anthropology recently published “Insinuendo“, a fun mystery novel which is one of the rare works of conservation fiction that presents conservation work as it really is. However, with the intense competition for places in the few North American conservation graduate programs, one wonders if protagonist Berry Cates would really have been accepted to any of them when, wanting/needing a chance of life after her husband walked out on her, she decided to study conservation.

  1. for anyone who is interested and involved in book conservation this is a very interesting site. go to dsmurray.com.au if you want to see what a bindery in the older style is and if you need to set up a bindery for yourself. It’s all there and more. enjoy it all!
