Why don't they ever get the job title correct?

Joanne Lee Young’s “A Guardian of Rare, Exotic Fabrics” (Wall Street Journal, March 8, 2013) is a profile of Julia Brennan which discusses both her work designing mounts and cases for the display of textiles as well as her hands-on conservation projects. But why couldn’t Young get Brennan’s job title correct? She is a textile conservator, not a textile conservationist.

  1. Ha! I had to argue with our own editor about that, and to have a redirect on our About page, since the Smithsonian does do both! I won. Keep up the good fight :>
