It's with a tinge of sadness that we inform you that this newsletter will be Dave Smith's last one as the graphic designer for the UCMP. After a 37-year employment history at UC Berkeley, the last 19 with the UCMP, Dave has decided to take the retirement plunge. Dave's contributions to UCMP span education, outreach, and public programs, and his enthusiasm for and interest in museum history and archives resulted in invaluable assistance on many collections projects.

Within the UCMP family, retirement rarely means goodbye. We often see our new retirees in volunteer roles, and we hope that Dave will visit again to help us with museum exhibits projects and to come on the occasional field trip! We look forward to celebrating Dave's contributions to the UCMP in the coming months and congratulate him on his much-deserved retirement.
