Howard Daniel submitted this information on the National Museum in Jakarta in response to an earlier E-Sylum query.
There was a request for information a few weeks ago in The E-sylum which I thought could be answered by contacting the National Museum in Jakarta, Indonesia, so I sent Wayne the contact information. As it turned out, the information was outdated. So I contacted a friend in Jakarta, Will Tuchrello, who is the head of the U.S. Library of Congress office for Southeast Asia.
He did not have the contact information in his Roledex so he asked a staffer to find it. This staffer, Arifin Pramono, called the museum and got the following information;
Dra. Rodina Satrina is the Curator of the Numismatic Department. She does not have an email address, but the Curator of the Archaeology Department is (Dra. or Mrs.?) Desrika Widyastuti, and her email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Desrika will print the emails and give them to Rodina.
The website address for the museum is now http://www.museumnasional.or.id, and the mailing address is Jl. Merdeka Barat No. 12,
Jakarta 10110, Indonesia. The telephone numbers are 021-381-1551 or 381-2346 or 386-8171 or 386-8172. I have no idea who will be speaking on the telephone at those numbers, or even if they speak English. The Fax telephone numbers are 021-381-1076 or 344-7778.
I hope the person with the questions about a Dutchman in Indonesia can acquire the answers he wants from the above contact information.
I am now back (December 24) from my three month trip to Southeast Asia and have to unpack and repack for the FUN Show, where I will have a club table for NBS and several other organizations. See you at FUN?
To visit the museum's web site, see:
Howard is Mr. Dependable. Time and time again he attends the major shows and mans a table for several organizations, where he distributes materials and recruits members. If you're at the FUN show, please stop by the table to say hello, thank him for his work, or offer to help out. Thanks.
