Dear Ms. Brown:

I am truly proud to send my greeting and congratulations to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as you celebrate your 100th Anniversary in the year 2001.

Since it's inception as the National Bureau of Standards in 1901, NIST has brought order into the world of American commerce and helped to build the technical foundations that are so important in Alaska and across the nation today.

On behalf of all Alaskans, best wishes on your Centennial Anniversary and for continued success.

Sincerely,

Tony Knowles
Governor
