Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation


Season’s Greetings

6 December 2022

Happy holidays from all of us here at the Hunt Institute. We wish you a happy and safe holiday season. Our offices will be closed to the public during winter break from 19 December 2022 until our normal hours resume on 3 January 2023, although we will continue to be closed on Tuesdays and Fridays for a few more weeks. We're looking forward to seeing you in the new year.

Continuing in our ghosts of holiday cards past series, we are pleased to present the one from 1964, which had been missing until our summer of organization yielded one copy and the proof annotated by George Lawrence. Check out the PDF to the right to read about the births of Huntia and our International series and the many other things we were doing in December 1964.
