Professor James Hamm was honored with the Sheldon and Caroline Keck Award at the 2017 American Institute for Conservation's (AIC) annual conference in Chicago on May 30th. This award recognizes a sustained record of excellence in the education and training of conservation professionals and is one of the highest honors given by AIC.
James has taught paintings conservation in the Patricia H. and Richard E. Garman Art Conservation department since 1986. He earned his M.A. degree and Certificate of Advanced Studies in Art Conservation from this program in 1978, when it was part of the Cooperstown Graduate Program, SUNY College at Oneonta.
The Keck award honors those that have selflessly taken on a key mentorship role in the lives of conservation students throughout their careers by providing advice, motivation, consultation, and excellence in education. Colleagues and former students are asked to write letters of support for this increasingly competitive award to be given. The department is incredibly proud of James for being honored for his outstanding performance, commitment, and dedication in the education and training of conservation professionals.
