Already affected by shrinking endowment portfolios, an alarming number of state and
university natural history museums came under assault this year as state legislatures across
the country scrambled to deal with sizable revenue shortfalls. Many museums faced budget
reductions, down sizing, and in a few cases, outright elimination. The severity of the
situation was reported widely in the press as the museum community tried to rally support, led by
organizations such as the Natural Science Collections Alliance and the American Association of

Against this bleak backdrop, I am pleased to report the Florida Museum of Natural History experienced
one of its finest years ever. A very supportive and creative university administration helped us weather
the third straight year of cuts to the university budget while our researchers and educators brought in a
record total of external grant funding. As a result, 2002-2003 had a multitude of highlights.
On Oct. 5 we opened our second permanent exhibition hall, "South Florida People and Environments:,
which is not only breathtakingly beautiful, but also enormously popular. In the fall, construction
commenced on McGuire Hall, our exciting new home for Lepidoptera and environmental studies. The
McGuire Family Foundation pledged an additional $3 million in late 2002 to create the McGuire Institute for Biodiversity and the Environ
ment at the museum. This wonderful gift galvanizes our research and educational thrusts in this arena, consistent with the biological and
environmental science emphasis identified in the University of Florida strategic plan.
In February the museum hosted "Passport to the Groovy '60s,' a very popular and highly successful,'far-out' fundraiser organized by the
Museum Associates. The museum then joined in the celebration of the university's sesquicentennial (1853-2003) by planning a huge 150th
birthday party and million-dollar fundraiser, "Party on the Plaza;' with its neighbors at the UF Cultural Plaza -the Samuel P. Harn Museum
of Art and the Curtis M. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.
A notable highlight in spring 2003 was the opening of "The Pearsall Collection of American Indian Art: 40th Anniversary Selections"
produced by guest curator Sandra Starr. This fabulous exhibition features more than 200 of the finest pieces from the museum's Leigh
Morgan Pearsall Collection, many of which have never been exhibited. The exhibition will remain on display indefinitely.
At the museum's Randell Research Center in Pineland, we broke ground on our new teaching pavilion, interpreted trail and parking lot.
These much-anticipated site improvements will enable Drs. Bill Marquardt, John Worth, Karen Walker, and the rest of the museum team in
Southwest Florida to share the unfolding mysteries of the Calusa with students, Floridians and tourists from all over the globe.
Distinguished Research Curator of Vertebrate Paleontology Dr. S. David Webb retired in June 2003. Friends, colleagues, and former students
gathered in May for "WebbFete" to celebrate Dave's brilliant 39-year career at the museum. Fortunately for us, Dave plans to spend at least
part of each year in Gainesville, dividing his time between Florida and Montana. And despite the university's budgetary challenges, the
museum was able to hire a replacement for Dave as well as fill a long-standing vacancy by hiring a new assistant curator of mammals. Both
new faculty members will arrive in 2003-2004.
Speaking of new faculty, we welcomed Dr. Scott Robinson from the University of Illinois to the museum this year. Scott holds our Eminent
Scholar Chair as Ordway Professor of Ecosystem Conservation, the position formerly held by Dr. John Eisenberg.
In these complex economic times, when many of our sister institutions across the nation are struggling for survival, the Florida Museum of
Natural History remains healthy and vigorous. By focusing on the core elements of our mission and performing at a consistently high level, I
believe we can predict many more highlights in the year ahead.

Florida museum of natural History annual Report 2002-2003


Archaeology, Ethnography,
Museum Studies
Kitty Emery, assistant curator of
Environmental Archaeology, did field work at
the Mayan site of Motul de San Jose,
Guatemala, with a focus on how the ancient
Maya interacted with plants and animals.
Along with collection managers Irvy
Quitmyer and Sylvia Scudder,
archaeobotanist Donna Ruhl and assistant
scientist Karen Walker, Emery's Environmen
tal Archaeology team has made great
progress in analyzing soils, plants and both
marine and terrestrial animals throughout
the Caribbean region (Florida, West Indian
islands, Middle America). These studies help
us understand complex prehistoric changes
in climate, sea level, soils, forest cover and
animal populations.
Our program in Historical Archaeology
continues to investigate early Spanish
settlements in Florida (St. Augustine) and
the Caribbean. Distinguished research
curator Kathleen Deagan received a $48,620
grant from Discovery Communications Inc.
to investigate La Navidad, which was
Christopher Columbus's 1492 fortress in
Haiti. She and collection manager Al Woods
surveyed and excavated this site for two
months during the summer of 2003.A grant
of $84,000 from the National Endowment for
the Humanities will allow Woods and Deagan
to create an on-line digital type-collection for
historic artifacts. Digital photography of the
ceramics already is completed.
After 28 years of outstanding research
and writing about Florida archaeology,
curator Jerald Milanich began phased
retirement this year. His writing projects
have not diminished, however, and we can
look forward to a continued flow
of books and

Milanich well
into the future, on topics
ranging from Florida's first peoples more
than 12,000 years ago (Paleoindians) to
historic issues such as the Black Seminole
project. Collection manager Scott Mitchell
began to curate and install the Aucilla River
collection of Paleoindian artifacts made of
bone, ivory and stone collected by distin

guished research curator David Webb and
his students and colleagues. Ceramicist Ann
Cordell completed investigations of pottery
and clay samples from archaeological sites in
Volusia, Polk and Lee counties.
Curator William Marquardt saw
completion of our permanent exhibit South
Florida People and Environments, based in
large part on research that he, Karen Walker,
John Worth and colleagues have completed at
the museum's Randell Research Center on
Pine Island in Lee County. The Randell
Research Center received major support this
year from the Maple Hill Foundation
($60,000) and the National Endowment for
the Humanities ($200,000).
Curator William Keegan completed a
second year of archaeology on St Lucia in
collaboration with Corinne Hofman and
Menno Hoogland of the University of Leiden,
The Netherlands. Other research on
Caribbean archaeology by Keegan, his
students and colleagues involved prehistoric
depletion of animal populations in the Turks
and Caicos Islands and detailed analyses of
artifacts and faunal remains from Jamaica.
An ongoing series of popular articles in the
magazine Times of the Islands is making the
prehistory of the rapidly developing Turks
and Caicos Islands much more accessible to
residents and visitors alike.
Susan Milbrath, curator of Latin
American Art and Archaeology, published a
major review paper on the prehistoric Mayan

W site of Mayapan in
Yucatan, Mexico. She also visited
Mayapan in July 2002. Along with museum
registrar Elise LeCompte, Milbrath oversaw
the move of the museum's ethnographic
collection from the first floor to improved
space on the third floor. This will allow for
badly needed expansion of archaeological
collections on the first floor of Dickinson
Hall, a process that we hope to complete
during 2003-04. Some 211 objects from the
Pearsall Collection of North American Indian
Artifacts were put on display at Powell Hall. A
grant of $14,920 from the John S. and James
L. Knight Foundation and the Pew Charitable
Trusts allowed 300 artifacts in the Pearsall
Collection to be catalogued and digitally
Curator Charlotte Porter spearheaded
our involvement in the UF Museum Studies
Program by teaching courses on exhibitry
and museum writing, as well as a course on
natural areas for the UF Honors Program.
Continuing her research on the history of
science and exploration in Florida, Porter
also was involved with a number of exhibits,
lectures and other forms of outreach on this
topic around the state. Porter was selected as
a founding member of the UF Libraries
Leadership Board. Along with Wayne King,
curator of Herpetolo.:, I .. ..11i. 1 a major
collection of research papers in
zooarchaeology to honor Elizabeth Wing,
who retired from the museum two years ago
but remains active in research.

Collections and Research
The 2002-03 fiscal year was one of unprecedented research and curatorial activities at the
Florida Museum of Natural History. Dickinson Hall is where nearly all of the museum's more
than 20 million objects are housed along with the associated field notes, photographs, databases
and libraries that enhance their irreplaceable scientific value.
The museum's world-class curators and collection managers brought in more than $2.2
million in new grants to support research, to care for the collections properly and to educate the
University of Florida's undergraduate and graduate students and the public.While the museum's
primary geographic strengths are in Florida, the Southeastern U.S. and the Caribbean, the
collections and research programs span the globe to include every continent and nearly every
island group on earth. Most of the collections of plants, animals, fossils and artifacts rank among
the top 10 in the United States if not the world.
Through studies of DNA, anatomy, ecology, behavior, paleontology and evolution of plants
and animals, the museum's curators, collection managers and students are the front line of
understanding life on earth. Similarly, the research by museum archaeologists and their students
is uncovering new information about how cultures have changed through time. We are proud to
serve the citizens of Florida and surrounding states as the Southeast's largest natural history
museum. We thank our diverse benefactors for their support, and we look forward to another
year of exciting research, discovery, curation and teaching at the University of Florida.
David W.Steadman, Ph. D
Assistant Director, Collections and Research

Vertebrate Zoology
With funding from the National Science
Foundation, James Albert, assistant curator
of Ichthyology, continued to study freshwater
fish of Amazonian Peru along with assistant
scientist William Crampton. Aside from
surveying and analyzing this very rich
though poorly known fish fauna, Drs. Albert
and Crampton are describing a number of
new species, especially electric fishes. The
fish collection received another year of
curatorial support from the National Science
Foundation, through a proposal written by
Albert and Florida Program for Shark
Research director George Burgess. With a lot
of hard, carefully planned work by collection
manager Rob Robins and his staff, the NSF
funded curatorial goals are being met and
the entire fish collection now is consolidated
in a single, expanded space that greatly
improves its access to researchers. Adjunct
curator Larry Page submitted a 5 year grant
proposal for $4.7 million to the National
Science Foundation to study the world's
catfishes, as many as 1,000 species of which
remain unknown to science.
Through major funding ($821,155),
especially from the Commercial Shark
Fishery Program of the U.S. Department of
Commerce, the Florida Program for Shark
Research greatly expanded its staff, facilities,
research and outreach this year. Director
George Burgess sent observers aboard
commercial fishing vessels to gather

biological information to be used in
management programs for sharks. In
museum laboratories, our shark researchers
began a long-term study of age, growth and
life history patterns of several large species
of coastal sharks. The Ichthyology web site,
as coordinated by shark research program
webmaster Cathy Bester, continues to be the
museum's most popular web site, largely
because of the International Shark Attack
File. The site received nearly 2 million visits
during the past year.
Herpetology curators Wayne King and
Max Nickerson, along with collection
manager Kenneth Krysko, surveyed
amphibians and reptiles in Florida in 22
counties from the Panhandle to the Keys.
Aside from monitoring the status of native
species, Drs. King, Nickerson and Krysko also
discovered new populations of exotic (non
native) toads, frogs, lizards, snakes and
turtles, especially in South Florida. This is a
potentially troubling situation for the native
species. Nickerson studied hellbenders (a
giant aquatic salamander), turtles and
cottonmouths in Missouri, Tennessee and
North Carolina. The Herpetology collection
received a $232,850 grant from the National
Science Foundation to be part of a continent
wide network of specimen-based informa
tion on amphibians and reptiles. Associate
scientist Richard Franz excavated a number
of 30-million year old fossil tortoises in
Nebraska and Colorado. He also studied

living and fossil gopher 1
tortoises in Florida, as well as
extinct giant tortoises in
Florida and the West Indian
Assistant scientist Perran Ross, along
with curator Wayne King, runs the Crocodile
Specialist Group for the IUCN-World
Conservation Union. While serving as a
clearinghouse for conservation-related
information on the world's 23 species of
crocodiles, alligators, caimans and gharials,
Ross and his students also engage in original
research, such as their current studies of
nutrition, growth, pathology, toxins and
mortality of alligators in Florida, especially
in Lake and Volusia counties. Through a
number of public and private sources, Ross
received $233,588 in new funding for his
programs. He also spoke at a conference in
Argentina about the conservation and
sustainable use of crocodiles.

database on the sources of bird
mortality in Florida, as well as
documenting seasonal and geographic
Sdata on rare or little known birds across
the state.
Our Mammalogy program received a
major boost with the hiring of David Reed,
who received his Ph.D. at Louisiana State
University and currently is a post-doctoral
fellow at the University of Utah. Reed, who
studies the co-evolution of mammals and
their external parasites, will begin his career
at the museum as assistant curator of
Mammalogy in March 2004. In the mean -
time, collection managers Candace
McCaffrey and Laurie Wilkins kept the
Mammalogy program vigorous through
salvaging and preparing a number of very
important specimens ranging from bats and
native mice to whales and endangered
Florida panthers.
Our collections and research in
Vertebrate Paleontology had a year of great
activity and transition. After 39 years of
outstanding scholarship and service,
distinguished research curator David Webb
retired in June 2003.While it is hard to
imagine how our museum, or the last 20
million years' worth of Florida mammals,
will get along without Webb, we successfully
sought and hired an able replacement.
Jonathan Bloch, a Ph.D. and post-doctoral
fellow from the University of Michigan, will
join the museum as assistant curator of
Vertebrate Paleontology in June 2004. Bloch
studies the early evolution of primates, bats
and insectivores. The Vertebrate Paleontology
collection grew through field work at Tyner
Farm and the LaBelle Highway Pit by
collection manager Richard Hulbert,
biological scientist Art Poyer and many
volunteers. Preparator Russell McCarty and
his volunteers worked mainly on fossil rhinos
from Tyner Farm and other sites. Curator
Bruce MacFadden led productive fossil
collecting trips to Nebraska and to the
Thomas Farm site in Gilchrist County. He
also began a project on Miocene fossil
mammals from the Panama Canal Zone. UF
undergraduate student Jeremy Green
completed a senior thesis on the paleobiology
of the American Mastodon in Florida.

taxonomic studies of freshwater and land
snails included field work in Tennessee
and Mexico. Paulay received
$ 2. ,099 from the National
c, s, nce Foundation to study
II,, biodiversity and evolu
I I. nary history of tropical
1 pacificc reef invertebrates.
Along with graduate and
post doctoral students,
Paulay completed marine
biodiversity surveys in
I II, i' il in and Guam. His mono
gldpll ull indaine biodiversity of Guam,
published in 2003, sets a new, high
standard for biodiversity inventories
The museum's Invertebrate Paleon
tology collection grew by leaps and
bounds this past year, through National
Geographic Society-sponsored field efforts
by collection manager Roger Portell (in
Florida, Jamaica, Bonaire and Curacao) as
well as fossils donated by colleagues and
volunteers. Portell's studies of fossil crabs,
sea urchins, brachiopods, sponges and
other marine invertebrates are showing
how much the overall marine fauna of
Florida and the Caribbean has changed
over the past 20 million years, even though
some types of crabs have in fact changed
very little during this time. Curator
Douglas Jones is building on his stable
isotope studies of growth in fossil clams to
look at seasonality of archaeological
coquina clams in Florida.

in Manatee and Sarasota counties. The
Millers are world authorities on two
butterfly families, the Nymphalidae
(Satyrinae) and Castniidae, new species of
which they continue to discover in the
field and in museum collections. Retired
UF Zoology professor Thomas Emmel has
been hired as director of the McGuire
Center. Combining several major butterfly
and moth collections, the McGuire Center
will house more than three million
specimens and soon become the second
largest Lepidoptera collection in the world.
Invigorated by major new funding
and additional staffing, the museum's
Malacology program had an outstanding
year. Curators Fred Thompson and Gustav
Paulay received $224,383 from the
National Science Foundation to computer
ize new collections of tropical and
subtropical mollusks. Thompson's


Herbarium curator Norris Williams and
collection manager Mark Whitten surveyed orchids in the rugged
southwestern part of the Dominican Republic in July 2002.Williams
received a $300,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to
study the evolution of neotropical orchids and their pollinators.
Whitten and Williams are world authorities on the relationships of
neotropical orchids and related families of plants, based mainly on
analyzing DNA sequences. Collection manager Kent Perkins has
developed an online catalogue of the Herbarium's collections,
including more than 1,000 beautiful color photos of 677 species of
plants. Studies of the 420,000 specimens in our Herbarium resulted
in at least 100 scientific publications by scientists worldwide over
the past year.
This was the first full year of research in the museum's
Laboratory of Molecular Systematics and Evolutionary Genetics,
headed by curator Pamela Soltis and professor Douglas Soltis of
UF's Botany Department. The Soltises, their many graduate
students and post-doctoral fellows, and collection manager
Matthew Gitzendanner, had a superb year of scholarly activities.
With support from four large, multi-year, multi-investigator grants
from the National Science Foundation, they studied genome
evolution and diversification in plants. The Soltises also continued
an exciting collaboration with our Paleobotany curators David
Dilcher and Steve Manchester to combine molecular and fossil
information to produce the most thorough look ever at the origin
and evolution of flowering plants. Soltis, Soltis and Gitzendanner
also are documenting the genetics of endangered species and
populations and using DNA sequences as a tool for understanding
hybridization in wild plants.
With major support from ongoing National Science Founda
tion grants, the museum's Paleobotany program, spearheaded by
graduate research professor David Dilcher and curator Steve
Manchester, made great strides in understanding the evolution of
flowering plants in North America, Europe and Asia. Dilcher,
working in the field and laboratory with Chinese colleagues and
museum biologist Terry Lott, expanded his study of Archaefructus,
the earliest (120 million years old) known flowering plant.
Manchester investigated early forms (20 to 60 million years old) of
familiar trees such as hackberries, willows, birches, sycamores and
walnuts, including field work in North Dakota, Wyoming, Montana
and Alberta.We were delighted to hire Hongshan Wang as Paleo

Programs for Students
More than 4,500 students participated in
docent-led museum tours that featured the
"Tusks! Ice Age Florida's Mammoths and
Mastodons" and "The Pearsall Collection of
American Indian Art: 40th Anniversary
Selections" exhibitions. Outdoor tours included
"Stayin' Alive" (grades 3 & 4),"Sensing Nature"
(K),"Eye on Insects" (grades 1 & 2, fall), and
"Green Machines" (grades 1 & 2, spring). A new
preschool tour of the "Tusks!" exhibition was
offered. All student materials are integrated
across the curriculum and correlated with
Florida's Sunshine State Standards and Grade
Level Expectations for the Sunshine State
Home School Activity Mornings were
offered two days in the fall and included a
collaborative program sponsored by the
Alachua County Office of Waste Alternatives.
These Activity Mornings provide self directed
learning experiences that encourage discovery
by both the students and their home school
Museum docents made 100 Inquiry Box
outreach presentations in four counties. The
object and activity-rich programs feature five
different topics that are correlated with
Florida's Grade Level Expectations for the
Sunshine State Standards and integrated across
the curriculum. Each Inquiry Box contains a
collection of objects and a teacher's guide with
participatory lessons and activities. Teachers
may borrow Inquiry Boxes for classroom use.
Almost 800 seventh-grade students from
12 schools attended Sensational Science, a
program that highlights the diverse areas of
science through the interactive exhibits
of 30 presenters. Education Coordina
tor Marilyn Roberts and Environ
mental Education Coordinator Deb
DiPietro conducted a workshop on
this program at the Florida
Association of Museums annual
martin in Orlando.

Teacher and adult Education
Nearly 150 educators attended the
Educators Open House, a collaborative
program of the UF Cultural Plaza museums
and School Board of Alachua County. A
teacher workshop on ecological sampling
techniques for forest vegetation and reptiles and amphibians was conducted at the Ordway
Preserve. Head Start teachers participated in workshops on the MESS "Tool Kit" (science
resources placed in every classroom) and the new MESS Kits.
For the first time, we taught a "Florida Master Naturalist Freshwater Wetlands Class" for
15 adults. The goal of this extension program is to encourage Floridians to learn more about
Florida's special ecosystems and to share their knowledge with others. The museum class
participants worked with the K-fifth-grade students in our spring break class,"Wet, Wild, and
Wonderful: Wetlands of Florida" coordinating activities on ospreys, carnivorous plants and bogs.
Special tours of "South Florida People and Environments', our newest permanent
exhibition, and "The Pearsall Collection of American Indian Art: 40th Anniversary Selections"
were offered for teachers, UF students, informal educators and docents.

New External Funding
The museum received a general
program support grant for $176,160 from the
State of Florida, Department of State,
Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida
Arts Council, and the National Endowment
for the Arts. This grant provided support for
exhibitions, outreach and general operations
including technology and public relations.

Externally Funded Projects
Touching, exploring, questioning, reading
and more questioning-in practical terms,
this describes what Marvelous Explorations
through Science and Stories is all about for the
participating children, their teachers and
families, and MESS coordinators. Funded in
part by grants from the ChevronTexaco
Foundation and the Institute of Museum and
Library Services, this collaborative project of
the museum, Alachua County Library District
and School Board of Alachua County Head
Start/PreK served about 850 students and 92
teachers in 46 Head Start classrooms during
the 2002-03 school year.
In early fall, each classroom received a
MESS Tool Kit, a large plastic tote filled with
numerous tools for young scientists to use:
hand-held magnifiers, big-screen microscopes,
measuring tapes, bug viewers, globes, magnets,
science photographs, measuring cups and
spoons, terrarium/aquarium, test tubes and
more. Head Start teachers were trained in
using these tools as well as the new MESS Kits.
MESS Kits, correlated with the Head Start
Child Outcomes Framework and integrated
across the curriculum, bring science materials,
books and activities to young children. MESS
coordinators visited classrooms regularly to
deliver MESS Kits on amphibians, dinosaurs,
fossils, garbage/recycling, human body, plant
life, reptiles, sea life, simple machines, sound,
water, weather and young naturalists. With
partners from the public library, MESS
coordinators made classroom presentations to
children using library books and objects from
the kits.
To involve families, MESS Around
programs were held on a Saturday morning in
the fall and spring. Families were invited to
explore museum exhibitions, participate in
special activities like storytelling, games and
crafts and examine live animals. During the
year, students took home backpacks containing
books, objects, and activity information from
the MESS Kits in their classrooms to share
with their families. MESS coordinators also
attended Head Start parent meetings to
describe ways parents can support their
children's learning.
Sixty students participated in Science and
Engineering Experiences for Knowledge, an
after-school program at Howard Bishop Middle
School. A collaborative initiative of UF's
Florida Museum of Natural History and
College of Engineering, School Board of

Alachua County/Howard Bishop Middle
School and Gainesville Regional Utilities,
SEEK is funded by a three-year grant from
the National Science Foundation. SEEK
engages students in investigative projects
that explore the program theme, "Florida's
Environment: Past, Present and Future,"
and also promote interest, knowledge and
understanding in science, engineering,
technology and mathematics. SEEK
targets students who are traditionally
underrepresented in these fields of study or at-risk.
Three SEEK units were offered during the
2002-2003 school year: Astronomy and Aero
space, Florida Black Bear and Nature of Science/
Entomology. They featured inquiry-based
science and engineering activities, presentations/
demonstrations by guests from other institutions
and field trips. Students went on field trips to the
UF Observatory, Challenger Learning Center in
Jacksonville, Kennedy Space Center, Ocala
National Forest, Greathouse Butterfly Farm and
Lowry Park Zoo. SEEK students share their
learning with others by participating as an
exhibitor/presenter at the museum's Sensational
Science program.

About 800 participant spaces were filled in the six-week summer program, four one-day
classes and week-long spring break classes offered for K-fifth-grade students, two one-week
photography classes, and a new class for middle school students called, "Biodiversity: from
Collection to Exhibition." Middle school students in this class learned about careers in
exhibits and design while studying our local biodiversity. The -
middle school students in both the photography and biodiversity
classes shared their work from the week in special exhibits for
family members and museum visitors.
The class themes relate to museum exhibitions or to the
museum's mission of natural history education. For example,
the summer exhibit "Everglades: Conservation and Exploita
tion" was a resource for students in "Engineer the Everglades."
One group of second and third-graders took on the challenge of
designing a national park -for the use of park animals, with no humans
allowed.The ant merry-go-round and the alligator water slide were big hits.
Scholarships for classes were awarded throughout the year.
Home School Field School nature classes on six different topics were
offered for home-schooled students.

Florida museum of natural History flnnual Report 2002-2003


This year was both disquieting and
exciting on the fundraising front.Any
hopes of an upward turn in the invest
ment market and economy didn't happen,
resulting in reductions in both the
investment value and the spending rate
on museum endowments. On the other
hand, donors continued to show their
support for numerous museum programs
and the three Cultural Plaza units teamed
up to organize a million-dollar fundraiser.
The McGuire Family Foundation made
a second generous gift to the museum in
the amount of $3 million to establish the
McGuire Institute for Biodiversity and the
Environment. This gift seeks to make the
university and the museum an internal
tional leader in the study of biodiversity
and the environment, a field that will play
an increasingly important role in the 21st
century as Earth's human population
expands, its natural resources are
depleted and its climate warms.

In November the Florida Museum of
Natural History, the Samuel P. Harn
Museum of Art and the Curtis M. Phillips
Center for the Performing Arts, along
with a committee co-chaired by Judy
Young, wife of UF president Charles
Young, and Gainesville residents Danny
and Nancy Ponce began planning and
promoting "Party on the Plaza." The goal
of this creative-black-tie gala is to
celebrate UF's 150th birthday and to
establish a $1 million Cultural Plaza
Endowment. Income from the endow
ment will be distributed equally among
the three Cultural Plaza units. The
museums will use endowment funds to
bring world-class traveling exhibitions to
Florida and to create their own signature
exhibits, highlighting the enormous
collections and the dynamic research
talent at UF The performing arts will use
these funds to attract, present and
commission the world's top performers.

Office of Institutional
The museum reorganized during the past year;
adding a new development officer and establish
ing an Office of Institutional Advancement,
headed by Susan Pharr. In addition to some direct
development work, she will oversee i,, 11 i 1. ..
public relations, development, membership,
facility rentals, visitor services, Museum
Associates Board relations and develop a national
museum advisory board. We welcome Robert
"Hutch" Hutchinson as our new development
officer. Hutch will focus on expanding the
museum's donor base by identifying new donors
for the museum's numerous programs.

supported numerous museum programs
including Environmental Archaeology,
Invertebrate Paleontology, Vertebrate
Paleontology, the Lastinger Archaeology
Endowment and the McGuire Institute for
Biodiversity and the Environment
a Gifts totaling more than $913,600
were designated for Non-Endowed Funds.
These gifts provided support for museum
initiatives such as establishing a McGuire
Center Publications Fund, Party on the
Plaza sponsorships, construction and
fabrication in the Hall of Florida Fossils as
well as a new migrating monarch butterfly
mobile in the Galleria, and continuing
support of museum education programs

such Marvelous Explorations through
Science and Stories.
-1 Membership: Paid museum member
ships increased to 731 members. In
February, the Museum Associates Board
held its annual fundraiser, "Passport to the
Groovy'60s,"' and raised more than $35,000
for museum programs. These dollars will
be used in our Collections and Research
department to purchase specimen
cabinets, fund the ancient DNA lab and
fund a fossil tortoise project. The funds
also will provide start-up costs for a
Florida Museum of Natural History
Teacher Sabbatical Program allowing a
public school teacher to spend a sabbatical
year at the museum, and help launch an
exciting new partnership with Natural
History magazine set to roll out in early 2004.
a- Non-cash gifts of artifacts and
specimens to our permanent collections
totaled $264,717.

The museum's private support came
from five sources:
