<P>04northern now winter 2016 inside niu After Fifty Years at NIU, the Anthropology Museum Has a New Name The newly dedicated James B. and Rosalyn L. Pick Museum of Anthropology honors the generous support of an NIU alumnus and his wife, marking a new era for the museum. The gift from Dr. James Pick, M.S.Ed. ‘69, and his wife, Dr. Rosalyn Laudati, created an unrestricted endowment to enhance and expand the museums collections and programs. In addition to his NIU degree, Pick holds a B.A. from Northwestern University and a Ph.D. from the University of California Irvine. He is a full professor and faculty leader in the School of Business at the University of Redlands in California, and joined the NIU Foundation board of directors in 2014. Dr. Rosalyn Laudati, a licensed psychologist in California, holds an A.B. from Brown University, an M.A. in general-experimental psychology from the University of Hartford, and a Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Iowa. She has served her ?eld in a variety of local and regional leadership capacities. We have both served on the boards of museums and understand how challenging it is to strategize and grow a museum over many decades, James Pick says. The Anthropology Museum, for ?fty-one years, has had an important in?uence on students at NIU. What Rosalyn and I envision is that the museums importance will grow and spread further for students, researchers, the Anthropology Department and museum studies programs, the community at NIU, and the broader community in the Chicago area. Founded in 1964, the museum has a rich history as a teaching and research collection, where faculty and students can explore what it means to be human. By holding an object, such as the actual obsidian blade used by a Maya king in ritual self-sacri?ce a thousand years ago, students can experience other cultures and be transported to other times in a much deeper way than is possible in the classroom or textbooks. With this gift, Jim and Rosalyn support everything that we stand for as a place of higher learning, including multi-disciplinary collaboration, engaged learning, community outreach, multiculturalism and student career success, NIU President Doug Baker says. The James B. and Rosalyn L. Pick Museum of Anthropology helps students prepare for success after graduation by providing opportunities to interact with people from many cultural backgrounds. What they see and experience through the museum helps them become critical thinkers and effective communicators. It is our core philosophy that museums change lives, says museum director Jennifer Kirker Priest. We are so fortunate to have Jim and Rosalyn share our vision and invest in our future.
