At the same meeting the Director, Dr. George G. Heye, together with Messrs. Orchard, Oetteking and Burnett were appointed the Staff Committee of the Museum to serve until the next annual meeting of the Board.

At the Annual Meeting Captain Eric Erskine Loch was elected a Life Member of the Institution in recognition of his services to science in leading the Ecuadorean Expedition to locate the Ssabela Indians, under the sponsorship of this Museum, Captain Loch having qualified himself for election as a Life Member through his gifts to the Museum of his entire collection of ethnological specimens resulting from his Expeditions.

Vice-Chairman Keppler reported to the Board at this meeting that the Thea Heye Memorial Committee, of which he was Chairman, has selected the design for a bronze tablet and had had the same cast and placed in the Lobby of the Museum. The Board viewed the Memorial and the Chairman on behalf of the Board expressed his appreciation of the beauty and fitness of the Memorial and thanked the Committee for their efforts and the members of the Board, whose contributions had made the Memorial possible.

The Regular Meeting of the Board of Trustees, scheduled for October 5, 1937, was not convened owing to the Chairman's absence in Europe and to the impossibility of getting a quorum for the meeting.
