Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation


Tancin and Jacobsen to receive Years of Service Awards

18 September 2019

As the Hunt Institute specializes in the history of botany, we have an appreciation for history and especially those who have a long history with us. We celebrate Librarian Charlotte A. Tancin and Director T. D. Jacobsen, who have been at the Institute for 35 and 40 years, respectively. They will be recognized with Years of Service Awards at Carnegie Mellon University's Andy Awards ceremony on 4 October.
