30(2) Bulletin published
10 December 2018
As sunlight diminishes here in Pittsburgh with the approach of winter, this issue of the Bulletin is a shining beacon in the darkness. We begin with luminaries in the field of cytogenetics as the Cornell University Cytology Microscope Slide Collection used by Lester W. Sharp, Barbara McClintock, Charles H. Uhl and Lowell F. Randolph finds a new home in our Archives. As the fall exhibition opens, Kandis Vermeer Phillips illuminates the alphabet in a botanical light. Huntia lights up in full Technicolor in its first online-only issue. Before the light fades, we ask our Associates to take a bow in the spotlight as we thank them for their support over the years.
