December 16, 1936
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

It was reported here today that John D. Rockefeller Jr. may attend the formal opening next Spring of the Palestine Archaeological Museum, construction of which was made possible by his donation of $2,000,000.

Inquiry at Mr. Rockefeller’s offices in New York drew the statement that Mr. Rockefeller’s present plans do not include “absence from the country at that time.” It was stated, however, that this did not preclude the possibility of his changing his mind.
