Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation


33(2) Bulletin published

18 November 2022

In this issue of the Bulletin we open the elevator doors and welcome you back to the botanical tranquility of our walnut-walled lobby. The travel show from our 16th International Exhibition of Botanical Art & Illustration is on display in our gallery through 16 December. Our summer of organization bears fruits, flowers, ladybugs and more. Carrie Roy is promoted to curator of art. She reports on two large gifts to the Art Department. Librarian Charlotte Tancin examines four books with manuscript indexes or notes bound in. We thank our 2022 Sponsors for supporting our mission and programs and strengthening our collections.
