February 4, 1990 | JAMES FLANIGAN
Big-company joint ventures, a business trend for the '90s, are springing up like mushrooms after rain. IBM and West Germany's Siemens have formed a venture to produce advanced memory chips; Ford and Japan's Nissan have done the same to produce a minivan, and IBM and Motorola are working on a radio network for computer data. And Washington may bless such ventures: Congress is debating anti-trust changes that would allow U.S.

A search committee has been formed to find a new director of New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, where Philippe de Montebello, who's been in charge since 1977, says he plans to retire at the end of the year. "Difficult as it is to contemplate life away from an institution to which I have devoted all but a few seasons of my professional life," De Montebello, 71, said in a statement issued Tuesday by the museum, "I know the time is right for both my own -- and the museum's -- inevitable transition."

I wholeheartedly agree with Tom Plate's Dec. 2 column highlighting Assemblywoman Sheila Kuehl's efforts to require a course in fine arts for high school graduation, because an education in the arts develops some of the essential capacities California students need to successfully compete for jobs in the next century.

Tisch, sources close to the board said Thursday. The proposal crystallized opposition to Wyman's tenure, even among his supporters on the company's board.

More than 60 wealthy donors exceeded the $25,000 annual limit on campaign contributions in the last election, and the Federal Election Commission did not enforce the law in these cases, according to the agency's own records.

Just after dawn on a Sunday in September, 100 years of American industrial history crumbled to dust in six seconds. On Sept. 22, Corning Glass Works dynamited its 135-foot silica mixing tower, the anchor of a century-old manufacturing complex built to mass produce the world's first incandescent light bulbs.
