Peabody Essex Museum director (and former AAMD President) Dan Monroe has announced that he will retire in 2019! He has led the museum since 1992. Aside from his strong involvement with AAMD he has also served as president of the American Alliance of Museums. And, most notably, Monroe was instrumental in creating the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act, or NAGPRA, the federal law governing the repatriation of sacred objects to their respective tribes. Many thanks to Dan for his service to the museum field and best wishes for retirement next year!
