The board of the St. Louis Society of the Archaeological Institute of America has resigned following a dispute over plans to sell a collection of Egyptian items.
The group turned to members with previous experience to fill interim slots. Past president (2009) Linda Bickel took over as president, and former president K. Ann Dempsey (1995) joined the board. Neither was available for comment.
The resignations came in accordance with the demands of the national Archaeological Institute of America.
