The structure of the Harry Ransom Center building is alluring. My camera came out of my bag and I began shooting. I wanted to take photos of the etched glass images of the first-floor plazas—trying to recognize the images became a game!
Then we stepped into the Paper Conservation Lab where this year’s intern Kimberly Kwan was working. I met Ken Grant, Head of Paper Lab, Preservation and Conservation and Jane Boyd, Conservator of the Paper Lab.
The third lab was the Photograph Conservation, I found it interesting to see the equipment used by the staff to accomplish assignments.
This was a great exploration, I’m looking forward to perusing the Books Arts Collection in depth next year.
