Statues Restorations

FEATURED ARTICLES
REAL ESTATE
June 16, 1985
Dale Baldwin's column on Robert Baboian, Texas Instruments corrosion expert and consultant to the Statue of Liberty restoration project, is of special interest to me. ("Practical Solutions for Corrosion, Rust," Real Estate section, June 9.) It is the first article I've seen on this particular aspect of the restoration, which I've been following carefully because I'm a proud graduate of Ellis Island and plan to be at the Ellis Island-Statue of Liberty Centennial Celebration on July 4, 1986.
