Jane Bultman grew up in Charlotte, graduated from UNC-Greensboro (then the Woman's College), and received a Master of Arts degree from Duke. She worked as a teacher, but then found the field of book conservation. She studied in New York at the Crafts Students League and with private instructors, as well as earned a certificate in preservation from Rutgers University. She worked in a private conservation lab in New York's Chelsea area for a few years, then did free-lance work with New York clients, followed by work at the New York Academy of Medicine. She moved to Chapel Hill when she retired.
Her talk is entitled "The Book in Colonial America, and Caring for Your Books." Printing and publishing in the colonies was far more interesting than she had thought, and far more active than she knew. The power of the printed word was pivotal in igniting the fire that became the American Revolution.
Jane Bultman, retired book conservator, will talk about “The Book in Colonial America and How to Care For your Books” on Sunday, April 1, 2012, 2 pm at the Visitors Center at 160 South Saint Mary’s Street, Raleigh, NC 27603.
