Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice (left) got it exactly right when she lauded Gail Serfaty (right) as a “national treasure, just like the ones in these rooms” at a reception for donors to the State Department’s art- and antiques-filled Diplomatic Reception Rooms on April 20. Mrs. Serfaty, who started work as an assistant to founding curator and “grand acquisitor” Clement Conger and succeeded to that post in 1995, will retire later this year after serving every secretary of state since Dean Rusk.
