Image Picker for Section 0

​It is with great sorrow that we report that Bruno Pouliot—Winterthur Senior Conservator of Objects and WUDPAC Affiliated Assitant Professor—passed away on May 23, 2018. His family, Sylvie, Camille, and Noemie, were with him.

A celebration of Bruno's life was held on June 4th in the Sundial Garden at Winterthur. Over 200 alumni and other conservators from across the country attended the event. Many spoke, sharing their stories and heartfelt memories. Bruno's family spoke of his lifelong love of nature, teaching, and conservation. Virtual attendees shared their memories of Bruno through social media posts from Zimbabwe to Nepal.

Bruno had recently received the American Institute for Conservation (AIC) Robert L. Feller Lifetime Achievement Award, given for exceptional contributions to the conservation profession over the course of one’s career. Bruno was the sixth recipient of the award since its inception in 2011. The award was presented on April 30th at the Hawkes Center on the Winterthur Estate, by AIC president Margaret Holben Ellis. Bruno’s remarks cited his profound admiration, commitment, and gratitude to the AIC, Winterthur, WUPDAC (especially his 80+ students), and the profession of conservation. His acceptance speech was taped and was shared at the 2018 AIC meeting in Houston.

In lieu of flowers, the Pouliot family suggests contributions in Bruno’s memory be made to Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library with “Bruno Pouliot Memorial” in the memo line and mailed to Winterthur Museum, c/o Development, 5105 Kennett Pike, Winterthur, DE 19735. The funds will be used toward the purchase of a tree to be planted in the Garden and the Louise and David Roselle Exhibitions Endowment.
