    Administrative History

    The Getty Conservation Institute (GCI) was launched in 1985 with the appointemnt of Luis Monreal as its first director. Monreal was succeeded by Miguel Corzo, who served as director from 1990 to 1998. Tim Whalen, the current director, was appointed in 1998. Since its inception, the GCI has engaged in a program of scientific research, educational activities, documentation, and the dissemination of information through publications, conferences, workshops, and public programs that include research opportunities for professionals and public lectures. In addition, the GCI has conducted international field projects in Asia, Africa, North and South America, and Europe. The GCI's endeavors are designed to serve the needs of the conservation profession by undertaking work that examines broad practical or theoretical questions of significance to the conservation field. The GCI develops and refines tools for conservation and shares its expertise with institutions and organizations worldwide so that its efforts have the greatest possible benefit to the practice of conservation. The GCI is a program overseen by the J. Paul Getty Trust, a not-for-profit educational organization.
