Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation


29(1) Bulletin published

8 August 2017

With this issue of the Bulletin, you'll see we're not in Kansas anymore. The twister that is keeping Huntia moored in black and white for one more issue has spun the Bulletin safely into Oz in full Technicolor. Summon your courage, marshal your sense of adventure and follow the yellow brick road into the spring issue of the Bulletin. In this issue we're highlighting several recent donations, a visit by the Strandell family and the publication of the 16(1) Huntia. You need not fear the flying monkeys, but the slime molds have returned to Archives with some notable botanists and a pardoned president. We're off to see the spring and fall exhibitions with a quick tour through recent donations of orchid prints, fruit cultivar watercolors and pen-and-ink botanical illustrations. We awake in the Library to learn a donation of botanical books by and for women was a dream come true.
