It was a truly royal reception at the Maryland Historical Society's 1999 Antiques Show Gala Preview Party. More than 400 antiques lovers perused roomfuls of collectible treasures and toured the exhibit "Wallis: Duchess of Windsor," while enjoying a buffet fit for a king.

Meanwhile, the king of costume-jewelry designers, Kenneth Jay Lane, held court with his fans. As he playfully toyed with a long string of pearls worn by board member Barbara Katz, she told Lane, "They're yours ... 1961!"

Others in attendance at the party included society board president Stan Klinefelter; director Dennis Fiori; board member Stiles Colwill; event chair Carolyn O'Keefe; committee members Megan Wolfe, Blair White, Olive Waxter, Julia Keelty and Marcy Sagel; "Calloway" Brooks, musician; Lou Van Dyck, CFO of New Enterprise Associates; Katie O'Hare, Baltimore-based actress; Dr. Dolores Njoku, Johns Hopkins pediatric anesthesiologist; Doug Becker, president of Sylvan Learning Systems; and Dick Horne, co-curator of the American Dime Museum.

The glamorous gathering garnered some $90,000 for the Maryland Historical Society.
