This past summer Juniata chemist Richard Hark spent time analyzing the coat of British naval hero Lord Horatio Nelson in the conservation studio of the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich in England. The slideshow shows Hark and colleagues Boris Pretzel, Nicola Yates, head of NMM textile conservation, and Betty Sacher, head of preventative conservation at NMM, using instruments like a small vacuum cleaner and a portable reflectance spectrophotometer to obtain baseline readings for the uniform to see if the uniform’s color has faded.

By Henry Thurston-Griswold
Note: This is the second installment of Henry Thurston-Griswold’s Guatemalan diary. Henry, along with his wife, Joanne, made their first trip to Guatemala in 1990 as part of a Habitat for Humanity trip. Taken with the country’s culture and its desperate need for consistent educational opportunities, Henry vowed to return. This diary covers Henry’s memories of the medical mission.
Bruce Davis, former Executive Director of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (the organization that puts on the Oscars) is not only a film connoisseur, but a 1965 Juniata graduate. He came to visit Juniata in October to talk film, Hollywood, and Juniata memories. Between guest lecturing classes, Davis found time to talk with me about his life during and after Juniata, and some of his favorite memories of college life.
