Hello and thank you for your question!

Fortunately, you are located within good proximity to some great resources for your need. Kansas City is a nearby area in which someone with the skill and reputation you might require can be found. Below, I have included a list of three good contacts. The first might provide a wider scope of who might be known for doing such work in the area. They will not likely be able to "recommend" someone, but instead offer a suggestion, again, of who might be known for doing this sort of highly specialized work. They have a world class conservation department and anything they might suggest would be considered sound. The other two, respectively, are a specialist in paper works who was on the conservation staff at Nelson-Atkins before starting his own service and a very well respected fine art conservator.

Here is the list:

1) Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art(###) ###-####/strong>

Conservation & Collections Management
Kate Garland
Senior Conservator, Objects Conservation

Scoff Heffley
Senior Conservator, Paintings Conservation

Mary Schafer
Conservator, Paintings Conservation & Manager, Mellon Conservation Science Endowment

Jill Kohler
Head, Registration

2) Mark Stevenson(###) ###-####/strong>

3) Van Witt Fine Art Conservation(###) ###-####/strong>

Again, these resources would be considered the best in your area and should certainly connect/ provide you with the service(s) you seek.

Thank you so much for writing in and the best of luck with your important document!

(Hoping it has provided assistance - if you require no further help - please rate my answer. This is an important step in that it is your way of letting me know you have been well-served [by my answer only]. Please note, though, that it does not/ cannot address any other aspects of your experience with JA; unfortunately, these are not in my control. Rating is also the way in which JA is prompted to extend credit for my service. So, your best rating is most appreciated! *Please let me know if I may be of further assistance* : )

Thank you, again.
