UM art museum receives estate commitment

   MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) -- A California couple with ties to the University of
Montana has committed a significant portion of their estate to the university's
Montana Museum of Art and Culture.
   While the amount went undisclosed Friday, the gift from Suzanne and Bruce
Crocker will support the director's position at the museum well into the future.
   Crocker and her husband reside in Palo Alto, Calif. She also serves on the
Montana Museum of Art and Culture's advisory council while her husband
serves on the UM Foundation board of trustees.
   It's hoped the couple's gift will help the goal of building a new museum.
   The Missoulian reports that the museum's lack of a suitable gallery forces it
to store away many art pieces in its collection.
