Synopsis: Presents events that shaped the Statue's renovation-one of the greatest undertakings of this century, requiring USD230 million in private funding. Includes the history of the Statue and French sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi's vision of a 151-foot high Greek goddess, weighing 450,000 pounds, with a 10-foot wide face and 35-foot waist. Gives structural advice by Alexandre Gustave Eiffel who engineered rigid iron supports that buttress the 3/32-inch thick copper sheets on the exterior surface. Addresses restoration of thousands of holes pitting the copper surface caused by a century of salt-air exposure. Describes distortion of the iron framework produced by continuous stress and fatigue. Examines previous repair attempts that created different problems and more deterioration. Proceedings from a NACE symposium. Provides descriptions of new materials and technical innovations developed during the renovation. Contains presentations by French and American engineers, architects, historians, and artisans all intimately involved in the reclamation effort. 8-1/2' x11', 45 color photographs, 57 black and white photographs.
