RESOLUTION 2001-13: The WIYN Board of Directors, on behalf of the entire Consortium, expresses its gratitude and appreciation for the service contributions of DR. SIDNEY WOLFF. As NOAO Director from 1987 to early 2001, and as a WIYN Board member from 1989 to 1992, Sidney's positive influence and strong support have been felt in numerous ways. Sidney exhibited the creativity and forbearance to play a leadership role in the creation of the public / private partnership to construct and operate a major telescope that became WIYN. Such a partnership was novel at the time, and Sidney was crucial in securng AURA and NSF support for the WIYN conceptand agreements. Equally important was Sidney's determination to make available the WIYN 3.5-m primary mirror, its associated support system, and the prime WIYN site on Kitt Peak. The delight that Sidney showed in watching WIYN come together as a telescope and then as a functioning observatory was contagious to everyone around her. As WIYN moved into commissioning and then operations, Sidney's support and leadership were crucial to integrating WIYN into Kitt Peak operations and achieving high telescope productivity. We note that Sidney has gone on to play a major role in another university-NOAO partnership that builds on her WIYN experience, SOAR. At the end of Sidney's long service as NOAO Director, we congratulate her on her many accomplishments.

RESOLUTION 2001-14: Budget authority for the current fiscal year is continued until the next Board meeting.
