Weights and Measures is a story that is told with objects. Many of the objects are in the collection of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Museum and several others were virtually borrowed for the exhibit. NIST wishes to thank all of the organizations that loaned objects.
Thanks also to Christopher Evans, Howard Harary, Zeina Jabbour, Richard Rhorer, and Jack Stone, Jr., of the NIST Manufacturing Engineering Laboratory for their assistance with the development of this exhibit.
