"On February 18, 1981, the new, permanent installation of the Museum’s collection of Assyrian reliefs from the palacc of Assumasirpal II in northern Iraq opened in the Raymond and Beverly Sackler Gallery for Assyrian Art. This happy event provided the Department of Ancient Near Eastern Art with an opportunity to pay tribute to Charles K. Wilkinson and to acknowledge the tremendous contribution he has made to the Museum over the years. The Department of Ancient Near Eastern Art came into being in 1956 under Charles Wilkinson’s direction and grew and expanded over the years under his beneficent care. During the opening ceremonies of the symposium in his honor, at which the papers published in this volume were presented, the late curator in charge of the department, Vaughn E. Crawford, made the following remarks:
It is my pleasure on behalf of The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Department of Ancient Near Eastern Art to welcome you to a series of lectures in honor of Charles K. Wilkinson, curator emeritus of this department. This event has been made possible by those who administer The Hagop Kevorkian Fund."
