Phone call to CRMS, June 6, 1986 (Cultural Resource Management Services is subdiv. of Brigham Young University; it is a kind of companion organization to the BYU Museum of Peoples and Cultures, although it is housed in the museum; a reorganization is anticipated in the near future which will redefine the relationship of CRMS to the University and Museum, and its name will probably be changed to Office of Public Archaeology)
