In memoriam

Robin Letellier (1944-2007)

Robin Letellier a joint Parcs Canada peu après sa graduation de l’Université Laval et a gravi les échelons pour devenir le chef des Services de relevés du patrimoine. After 2000, Robin worked as a Heritage Conservation Management Consultant, specialized in heritage recording. Beginning in 2002, he was also strongly involved, as the International Coordinator for the RecorDIM Initiative, a partnership of a number of international and national heritage organizations, working together to bridge the gaps in the heritage field between information users and information providers. As part of this initiative, he authored a textbook entitled, ‘Recording, Documentation and Information Management for the Conservation of Heritage Places - Guiding Principles.’ For over 20 years, Robin was a regular lecturer at ICCROM on aspects of heritage recording. Robin was instrumental in the development of the joint ICCROM-Getty Conservation Institute Course on Architectural Records, Inventories, and Information Systems for Conservation. Robin was an active member of ICOMOS Canada as well as a long-time APT member, supporter and advocate. He understood that much of the built heritage we see today will disappear and that the next generations will only discover it through documentation.
