The Documentation Program

In July 1993, Dr. Margaret Mac Lean was named the Director of the Getty Conservation Institute's Documentation Program. An anthropologist by training, with field experience in documentation expeditions for her own archaeological research in Latin America, Dr. Mac Lean came to the Institute from the position of Executive Director of the Center for Field Research in Cambridge, Massachusetts, associated with Earthwatch. To the Documentation Program's new mandate in field conservation as well as other activities, she brings her experience as a manager of non-profit scholarly and field activity, and an interest in site management and international policy that were further developed during her three years as Senior Coordinator in the Institute's Training Program.

Dr. Kathleen McDonnell, formerly Acting Director of the Program, will continue to serve in the newly defined role of Deputy Director, working closely with all levels of staff on broad program and policy issues, and utilizing her background in conservation information management in the activities of the Research and Applications section.
