robert-h-dysonAt the end of the decade, the University will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Museum, and there is no one more capable than Bob Dyson of lead­ing this great cultural institution into its second century. The task before him is formidable; an international search for funds is required to assure a future for one of the world’s richest treasuries of the past.

Bob brings to his new position not only a distinguished record of scholarly accom­plishment and demonstrated administrative ability but such genuine enthusiasm for the work before him that I am filled with hope. It is the expedition and exhibition functions of the Museum which make it so singular an educational resource, and under his leadership I am confident they will be per­formed creatively and superbly well.

ROBERT L. TRESCHER, Chairman emeritus of the Board of Overseers of The University Museum, and Vice Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the University of Pennsylvania.
