The three days, Wednesday thru Friday, of sessions and entertainment will be full days. All who have plans of their own for the Washington visit are advised to come early in the week. Registration will start at hotel headquarters on the day before the meeting. Final registration will be early Wednesday morning, immediately after which the first session will begin with the keynote address.

Hotel Statler, Washington 13, D.C. is hotel headquarters. Reservations should be made as soon as possible, direct to the Hotel. There is no reservation form; write or wire indicating time of arrival and any preference as to rate. Current issues of The Museum News, from April 1, will give room rates.

This anniversary meeting will be long remembered. Plan to be with us and to bring your colleagues and museum friends.
