This has been a year for a great deal of work behind the scenes. We made trips to Portland each week for meetings with architects, exhibit designers, donors, and corporate leaders. We hosted over 200 meetings in our Kem room in support of many diverse community organizations.

When I review this year in perspective, what really stands out in my mind is that this is the year Board leadership really excelled. The pride and commitment demonstrated on every front has been nothing short of outstanding. I am sure that all of us are proud that we have ended yet another fiscal year solidly in the black. Finally, I want to say that I am very impressed, as I am sure we all are, by the amount of time personally contributed to the Museum by our board president Robley Mangold. His wise counsel and great wisdom has kept us on target.

This has been a whirlwind year for fundraising success with our Capital Campaign for the Museum's expansion project. We received a $1,200,000 challenge grant from the Meyer Memorial Trust, an endorsement which represents one of the largest single grants ever given to a non-profit in this part of the state and was exceeded only by the donations of our own board members, who have pledged a total of $1,300,000.

We also reroofed the first half of the main building without shutting down our operations. We achieved this by working hand-in-hand with the contractors 24 hours a day for two and a half weeks. This challenging project also resulted in upgrading our thermal insulation and bringing our roof up to current codes for fire safety.

This is the year that the Astoria Trolley came online with the assistance of our staff serving as volunteers on the painting committee; and this is the year that the Astoria Waterfront walkway was extended from the Maritime Museum upriver to the East Mooring Basin.

So perhaps it is fitting that this year went by like a whirlwind, as all of our great progress and success has been accomplished in the blink of an eye.

Someone once told me that the greatest irony in life is how our sense of time increasingly compresses each year. Finding myself writing my 11 th Annual Director's Report covering our 37th year of Museum activity amazes me. It seems like just yesterday when I began writing my first Director's Report. And it seems like this last year has passed without even experiencing Spring, or for that matter, Summer.

This was a banner year for our public interpretation program. We brought in not just one, but three large sailing ships to dock at the Museum. It has been one of the most productive years ever for outstanding educational achievements, as our programs received both national and international recognition.

Board of Trustees:

Perhaps the most daunting aspect was the recruitment and training of the volunteers. Endeavourrequired three watches of 20 volunteers per watch for each of the nine days she was open to the public. Recruitment notices were placed in The Quarterdeck and in local , papers. 140 brave and intrepid volunteers signed on for the task of serving as Endeavour guides Training included a three-week lecture series on the life of Jarnes Cook presented by Museum Volunteer Byron Ruppel, Endeavour videos, and an onboard orientation. When all was said and done, over 1,676 volunteer hours were donated to the effort.

Endeavour to the libraries of our local public schools. In the spring, a Building of Endeavour photographic exhibit was displayed in the KemRoom.

The highlight of the past summer was the visit to the Museum of three unique sailing ships In May the replica Lady Washington stopped at the Museum for a few days as part of her West Coast voyage. In June the USCG Barque Eagle made her first-ever stop in Astoria, Oregon. This special visit to the Columbia River Maritime Museum was an incredible honor. America's world class sailing ship moored for a day at the Museum before continuing upriver to Portland as part of a cadet training cruise. Free deck tours allowed over 3,700 people to walk the teak decks of this magnificent vessel while she was in Astoria.

The visit that produced the greatest opportunity for the Museum was that of Endeavour a replica of Captain James Cook's vessel ho~eported in Australia. Touted as the finest replica vessel afloat, the Endeavour was on the western leg of a world tour. Preparations for her visit began a full year before her scheduled arrival. To educate students and teachers about Endeavour and Captain Cook, an on-line curriculum was developed and in-classroom prograrns were presented The Museum donated books on

Endeavour's visit garnered much media attention. Her arrival was greeted by local and Portland area media including the ABC, CBS, NBC, and independent television affiliates. This coverage brought people from throughout the North Coast and Portland area to tour the vessel. At the end of the nine days Endeavour was open to the public 9,412 visitors had toured the vessel, making her stop in Astoria one of the most successful on her North American tour.

For the first time this summer visitors to the Museum were able to arrive by trolley. #300 is a welcome and charming addition to the waterfront.

As members and friends of our Museum, you can help with this effort. Your g ifts will en s ure our success and will help our Museum expand and grow in the coming century.

As you know, our Museum has been working to raise $5,000,000 to support this effort, and our success to date has been impressive. Our board of trustees has contributed over $1,000,000 toward our campaign. We have passed the $2,800,000 mark, and we are working now to complete the campaign by this coming summer

Charting a New Course

1999 has been a year of sea change for our Museum. We have all been busy with the visits of three tall ships, the addition of new traveling education programs, and the cataloging of our Museum Library.

The QuarterDeck, Vol. 25 No. 4

Just as important, our Museum has embarked on a new course, one that will create new exhibits, a new theater, an expanded library and classroom space, a new gift shop, and a stunning new entrance and waterfront plaza. These changes will create a new Museum ready to enter a new millenium with promise and strength.

Museum Income Sources

Rolf & Alice Klep Charitable Trust: Although this trust is not owned by the Museum, we are the beneficiary of earnings which are transferred to the Museum Income Fund quarterly. This portfolio has a current market value of $2,403,000 plus a real estate portfolio. These latter two funds are managed with an emphasis on growth and earnings by the Trust Department of US Bank as overseen by trustees. During 1999 trustees conducted a thorough evaluation of portfolio performance and agreed to add two new money managers for the new fiscal year.

Special Projects Fund: This fund reflects gifts & grants given to the Museum for education, new exhibits and specific programs including the CRPA Photo Cataloging and Molly Watkins and the Secret of the South Jettyeducationbook.Thebeginningfund balance was $84,000, which represents a number of projects spanning multiple years. Gifts, grants, and interest payments for this fiscal year were $42,000 and expenditures were $80,000, leaving an ending balance of $46,000. Expenditures for these funds will continue through the next fiscal year as the projects are completed.

CRMM Endowment: This endowment was created with funds received from a Charitable Remainder Trust in 1998. The fund had a market value of $181,000 at the beginning of the year, and ended the year with a market value of$182,000. $9,000 of income was used to support the Museum's general operations as specified by the donor. These funds are managed by Union Bank of California's Trust Department as overseen by the trustees of the Museum.

The following is the report of financial condition for the Columbia River Maritime Museum's fiscal year, which ended September 30, 1999.

Capital Campaign: This fund has been established for a major building renovation and new exhibits with a goal of $5 million. As of September 30, $2,801,000 had been received and pledged for the project.

Museum Income Fund: This fund ' created in 1993 by the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees, is used to hold the earnings from the Rolf & Alice Klep Charitable Trust, and mirrors that portfolio asset composition. Earnings from the Klep Trust and the Income Fund are used for general operating as

The Oregon Tourism Commission reports that on the average, pleasure travelers spend $122 per day for a group of 3.1 people. Thus, $122/ 3.1= $39/per person per day spent.

With the addition of our full-time Media Relations Manager, Mary Davis, the Marketing and Public Relations Department made a media splash this summer. We started the season with a volunteer marketing distribution of Museum information including rack cards, membership brochures, and summer event information

$39 per person x 6588 people= $257,000.

The media outreach program allows the Museum to place information about Museum events at a minimal cost in a variety of publications and news centers around the Northwest. This outreach program where we contact individuals in the media increases the effect of our paid advertising.

The Museum's involvement in the Oregon Tourism Commission's Attractions Group, the Portland Oregon Visitors Association and the Astoria/Warrenton Chamber of Commerce's Lower Columbia Tourism Council gives the ability to participate in cooperative advertising and benefit from networking opportunities . These partnerships provide the Museum the ability to participate in advertising that otherwise would be cost prohibitive.

This summer season alone, the department assisted in the development of more than 85 free newsprint articles worth over $45,000 (the cost to purchase the same amount of publication). This conservative number is only a percentage of the actual articles that ran , and we owe many thanks to our volunteers who clip newspaper articles that highlight the Columbia River Maritime Museum; we couldn't track these statistics without their watchful eyes The service that they provide saves us thousands of

We anticipate continuing our strong media relations as well as building more partnerships to provide the Columbia River Maritime Museum with future success .

We made "house calls" to the media in Portland for the visit from Endeavour, and that launched stories on each of the network news affiliates and news broadcast stations. Although these values are more difficult to track, what this means is ... We had some great placement!!

Molly Watkins is a fictional story written and designed by education and curatorial staff. The book serves as a multi-disciplinary curriculum resource for use by 5t h and 6th grade teachers and students. The story is about a young girl and the mysterious object she finds while beachcombing. Through Molly's research at the Columbia River Maritime Museum and correspondence with her kindly old Uncle Jasper, a former lighthouse keeper, she discovers what the item is and where it came from. Along the way Molly, and the reader, are introduced to Coast Guard and Northwest maritime history, science, and the role and importance of museums. Over

This program paired local elementary classes with the USCG Cutters Steadfast and Alert. The cutters served as learning laboratories to supplement and enrich classroom education.

Through visits to the cutter and Museum, classroom visits by the crew, "at sea" updates, and a study guide prepared by the Museum, students sharpened their math, science, social studies, and critical-thinking skills. The program came to an exciting end with the classes spending a day aboard their adopted cutters.

In Their Footsteps has garnered national attention as an example of the use of computer technology in museums and creative collaborations. It was featured in an opening presentation at the 1999 International Conference of Maritime Museums (ICMM) in Philadelphia, PA as an example of partnerships. The Education and Curatorial Departments partnered with Astoria High School in a year-long project that turned the Museum into a classroom. Two or three mornings each week students spent a portion of their school day at the Museum researching, creating, and assembling a multi-media presentation about Astoria's history.Using the latest in computer technology, Museum artifacts and photo collection, the students produced a 20minute program entitled In Their Footsteps. Shown throughout the summer, the program introduced Museum visitors to the rich stories behind the artifacts.

New this year is the family-oriented guide to the Museum, Scuttlebutt. The guide includes a discovery tour of the Museum and activities for children to complete at home. Scuttlebutt encourages families to actively explore the Museum together, and has proven to be a great success.

With a commitment to lifelong learning, the Museum presented a series of adult education classes.

Richard Fencsak reprised his always popular 10-week Columbia River History course. International maritime photographer Thad Koza presented two tall ship slide shows to packed Kem Room audiences.

Our librarian, Arline Schmidt, and curatorial volunteers are now re-housing and cataloging the Museum's extensive photo collection This is a collection of over 10,000 photos that will be made more accessible to researchers while allowing better protection of the photos.

Curatorial

Some of the most interesting collections include artifacts from the New Carissa, a spectacular model of the sailing vessel Emily Whitney, which was a first prize winner in the Museum's Annual Ship Model Competition in 1980, and even a full Officer's uniform and awards from a crewman of USS Knapp.

The Library has continued to grow in its use. The completion of the computer cataloging of the Library collection has allowed for a more user friendly library and has made research much more approachable. An entirely new audience has found an interest in the Museum through our web site. This year we received over 100 research questions and donation queries via email. This is a 100% increase from the previous year The internet has increased our exposure to an international level, with research queries on the Columbia River and the Pacific Northwest arriving from all over the world.

In the past year four new exhibits were displayed at the Museum, both in the Kem Room and the Great Hall. Highlights included a photo show on the building of Endeavour and the very popular exhibit and video presentation of the wreck of the New Carissa. The video follows the story from the first calls made to the floundering ship from the Coos Bay Coast Guard to the final sinking of the forward section by the US Navy. A day does not go by when a crowd is not watching and discussing this exhibit in the Museum's Great Hall.

The Museum now has its own monthly column in The Daily Astorian The Curator's Comer runs every fourth Thursday in the Coast Weekend section of the paper. We have received much positive feedback from the community and are grateful to The Daily Astorian for this opportunity.

This has been an especially busy year for the Museum, and the Curatorial Department was no exception. With all the visiting ships and the great exposure of the Museum in the media, donations continue to rise. This year over 80 artifact collections were accepted into the Museum's archives. This is the largest number of donations since 1995.

The coming year will present some exciting challenges for the curatorial team as we prepare for the Museum expansion. The collections storage and library will be relocated this winter, to prepare for the expansion project, and then the exhibit design for the Great Hall will begin this coming fall

It is amazing in this time of information overload that our recorded images and knowledge of the world actually, in a way, are slowly diminishing. Photographic negatives from the early days of photography are all succumbing to the ravages of time. But now new technology has allowed Museums and Libraries around the world a way to slow this progress, by creating a digital copy of that historic image.

All of these images currently exist only in negative form which are very fragile and difficult to view.

Each 4" x 5" negative will be captured by a high resolution scanner and entered into a searchable computer database. It is estimated that this will take most of the next two months to accomplish. After the scanning has been completed the next step in the project is to produce a publicly available CD-ROM of the best of this collection. This is the first major step in the Museum's efforts to make our entire collection of photos even more accessible.

What an exciting time to be a member! We are embarking on a fantastic voyage of change here at the Museum. With expansion plans for the Museum starting to become a reality, there will be more activities to offer our members. The planning is underway, so be watching for some new and exciting events coming your way. Of course, without the support of you, our members, through your annual membership contributions, we would be unable to provide these fun and educational events, fulfilling our larger mission of relating our maritime heritage to the greatest possible audience. Thanks to all of you!

Ted was enthusiastic about all museum activities. For example,the day Endeavour arrived at our dock on July 24th , Ted was there. He pointed to this exquisite replica ship and said, "Now that dog hunts!" He had that wonderful big grin and was clearly having fun welcoming this ship to Astoria on behalf of what he considered the finest maritime museum in the world. We will all miss Ted, but his memory lives on at the Museum. There is so much here that will remind us of him and all that he has helped us to accomplish.

In Memoriam

Looking for a Holulay Gift? Museum memberships are the perfect gift for everyone on your holiday gift list.

We would like to take this opportunity to remember one of our most respected trustees. Ted Natt was killed in a helicopter crash this summer. He was a past board president and one of our most active members. Ted felt strongly that the future of the Columbia River Maritime Museum would be determined by the decisions and sacrifices each of us would make.

Memberships make great holiday gifts!

Ted was clever, bold, and forceful in his leadership. Ted worked hard to geographically widen the board and persuade big businesses to financially support the Museum. Ted believed we needed to drive harder to expand our remodeling plans. Ted always reminded us that we had better have fun while we are at this or we are all missing the boat.

Looking for a holiday gift? Museum memberships are the perfect gifts for everyone on your holiday gift list, especially for those friends or family members who seem to have everything. We will be happy to send the gift packet to you for your personal note, or we can send it with your best wishes. It's as easy as picking up the phone. If you'd like to order a gift membership or if you need further information, please call the Membership Department Monday through Friday at (503)325-2323.

John had volunteered at the Museum since 1995, and in that time had donated over 1,100 hoursofhistimeto the Museum. As a keeper on the lightship Columbia, John could be found each Friday sharing his knowledge with Museum visitors. His love for all things maritime led him to be involved in many Museum activities including maintaining exhibits, serving as a guide on Endeavour and Missouri, inventorying collections, building ship models to be used in education programs, and writing a lightship handbook. John's warm smile and presence will be sorely missed and fondly remembered by all who had the privilege to knowhim.

• In October, a lecture series by Byron D. Ruppel, Lewis and Clark Revisited, explored the lesser discussed aspects of the Lewis and Clark journey of discovery. 50 people attended the four-week course, the first in a series of programs the Museum will offer in preparation for the Lewis and Clark bicentennial.

• Congratulations to David Pearson for his promotion to Curator. After a nation-wide search it was determined that Dave was the right candidate to help take the Museum through the expansion process. Dave had been serving as acting Curator during the interim as well as continuing his duties as Associate Curator of Exhibits.

• When members, friends, supporters and trustees of the Columbia River Maritime Museum met at the Seaside Convention Center for this year's annual membership meeting and banquet, they were greeted with a first-hand glimpse of the Museum's planned renovations and improvements. Exhibit designs as well as architectural models and drawings were on display. The engaging dinner featured guest speaker Bill Milwee, a member of the Unified Command for the New Carissa casualty. As the Responsible Party's On-Scene Coordinator for the New Carissa salvage operation, Mr. Milwee gave an in depth analysis of the predicaments and peril associated with the modem-day shipwreck.

• Thanks to a grant from Trust Management Services, LLC the Museum has begun the Footsteps Oral History Program. Eight ninthgrade students are spending their study hall class period this semester collecting oral histories of community members. Each student selected a lower Columbia River history topic that interested them, did research on the topic, and with the help of Museum volunteers serving as mentors, selected people to interview. So far 20 oral histories have been collected covering the subjects of bar pilots, Coast Guard, Astoria during World War II, canneries, horse seining, and the building of the Astoria-Megler Bridge. The students will combine the histories with photos from the Museum's archives to create web-pages. Read more about this in the next Quarterdeck.

• On May 4, 1999, 76 young photographers from six area high schools were sent out to capture the life and character of the ColumbiaPacific community. Supplied with a camera and given only 24 hours, the students' goal was to tell the story of the region its people, economy, recreation, and environment- through pictures. 26 of the photos captured that day are on display in the Kem Room as the exhibit, "A Day In The Life." The program was developed and coordinated by Jon Graves, PSU Community Outreach at MERTS and Ed Hunt, editor at tidepool.org. The exhibit will run through December 10th

• A capacity crowd filled the Kem Room September 11 th to see Ed Edmo' s one man show, Celilo Falls: A Place, A Memory. Ed portrayed a Columbia River Indian fisherman remembering Celilo Falls and the upheaval caused by the building of the Dalles Dam.
