Winterthur receives new endowment in furniture conservation

Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library announced a newly endowed position, named the Elizabeth Terry Seaks Furniture Conservator, in honor of the late mother of Dr. Terry G. Seaks, a collector and economist who made the position possible.

Mark Anderson, senior furniture conservator at Winterthur, will assume the endowed position immediately.

"Winterthur is deeply grateful to Dr. Terry G. Seaks for this generous planned gift and continuing annual donations,” Winterthur director David P. Roselle said in a statement. "Through Mervin Martin, Winterthur Furniture Conservator from 1968 until 1979, Terry became familiar with conservation at Winterthur. After Merv's death in 2009, Terry renewed his relationship with Winterthur through Mark Anderson, and we congratulate Mark for his appointment to this newly endowed post, which will serve as a lasting tribute to the late Elizabeth Terry Seaks."
