Here are the date, time and details for the "Meeting of Remembrance" we
will be hosting in honor of the late Dr. Joe Ben Wheat.  It is important 
to us, in keeping with Dr. Wheat's wishes, that we use the term "meeting" 
rather that "memorial" because he thought the latter had connotations of 

The CU Museum invites you to attend a Meeting of Remembrance for Joe Ben
Wheat Saturday, September 6, 1997, at 10 AM.  We will meet informally at
the Mary Rippon Theater behind the Museum, at the University of Colorado

Museum for light refreshments. If you are willing to give us a few written

are unable to attend, please send them.  We will compile all responses 
for the Joe Ben Wheat Archive at the Museum.  If you would like notes of 
the meeting, please let usknow. We invite you to attend and to share this 
notice with others who knew Joe Ben.  Please address letters of remembrance
