__________________

On June 14, 1929, the Museum suffered a severe loss in the death of Mr.
Minor C. Keith, who had been a trustee since the founding of the Museum
in 1916.  Mr. Keith, owing to his advanced years, had been unable to attend many of the Trustees' meetings during the latter years of his life but had always maintained a keen and helpful interest in the Museum's activities. His gifts to the Museum from his extremely important collections of Central American Indian cultures, his great influence and prestige in Central America, freely exercised by him to foster a friendly attitude on the part of the Central American Governments towards our Museum's expeditions and for the shipment of its collections, his contributions to the various funds of the Museum from time to time and, in general, his sympathetic support of the Museum's aims and activities, have been of inestimable value to the Museum and aid to the Chairman, to his fellow trustees and to the staff in the discharge of their duties.

The Board of Trustees desire to recognize Mr. Keith's invaluable services to the Museum and to science and to record their deep sense of loss in his passing on.

On November 25, 1929, the Grantor, Mr. George G. Heye, appointed Dr. Louis Faugeres Bishop as a trustee of the Museum and Dr. Bishop accepted his appointment and attended the meeting of the Board held December 3, 1929.
