        At this year's US National Conference on Cultural Property
        Protection Award Dinner the evening of 7 February 2001, in a
        hotel outside Washington DC, Mr. Ton Cremers is awarded the
        Robert B. Burke Award for excellence in cultural property
        protection. He becomes the eighth annual recipient of this
        profession's highest honor in the United States.

        Mr. Cremers receives an engraved crystal glass flame to
        symbolize the spirit of achievement and accomplishment in
        this profession. An accompanying photo
        <URL:> shows the
        award presented by Mr. Wilbur Faulk of the Getty
        Conservation Institute with Mr. Dirk DeKlerck of the Belgium
        Police Art Research Team who will deliver the award
        personally to the recipient on the coming weekend.

        The award recognizes a professional worthy of emulation by
        others, based on lifetime achievement and specific project

        *   During his past 4 years  Mr. Cremers conceived and
            developed the Museum Security Network--an Internet web
            site and listserv at <URL:>
            which has outgrown all other national and world
            professional organizing and service efforts in the field
            of museum and library security.

        *   The Museum Security Network continues to serve a
            limitless number of cultural organizations and
            protection professionals in virtual time at the most
            minimum of cost.

        *   The work of Museum Security Network encourages improved
            cultural protection and prevents and solves crimes
            against cultural property.

        *   Mr. Cremers' determination, personal investment and
            modesty in providing continuous worldwide service are a
            model of professional excellence without equal today.

    Thank you, Ton, and wife Marian, for making this profession's
    networking and accomplishments 20th and 21st Century realities.
    No doubt it will be with great reluctance that Ton would put
    this notice on his listserv for readers to know and appreciate.
    But he will do so only to encourage each of you to conceive and
    develop those next accomplishments that would make our work more
    effective and the world's cultural property even safer. The
    Museum Security Network is a not-for-profit free service.
