26(2) Bulletin published

The fall issue of our Bulletin includes a sumptuous feast of information about the latest happenings at the Institute. Our assistant curator of art discusses the thorny, the spiny and the prickly featured in the Dangerous Beauty exhibition. Our archival intern showcases our collection of botanist Benjamin Minge Duggar. Our archivist sadly reports the passing of economic botanist Walter H. Hodge. Our publication and marketing manager happily announces the debut of our redesigned Web site at its new URL. We thank our 2014 Associates for their generous support and detail the 2015 program benefits.
