Natural Sciences in the Archives
We’re just bursting with pride over Drexel’s new partnership with the Academy of Natural Sciences. To show our school spirit, we’re putting on a show—or rather an exhibit—of rare natural history books from Drexel Archive’s special collections. The exhibit was put together by Archives volunteer and iSchool grad student Phoebe Kowalewski. Works on display include an astronomy text from 1566 by Alessandro Piccolomini, Jonathan Carver’s 1781 Travels through the Interior Parts of North America, and several volumes of Audubon’s Quadrupeds of North America and Birds Of America. Fly by soon and get an eyeful.
