If the return to campus life after a few days away (hopefully someplace sunny) are getting you down, may we suggest the Special Collections exhibit as a potential cure, or at least a temporary lift. This spring we’re showcasing some images from our collection of the 25 volume set, A Monograph of the Trochilida, or Family of Hummingbirds. John Gould, the naturalist who compiled this set, worked in the 19th century, around the same time as John James Audubon. In this set, his most reknowned, he captured images of hummingbirds from around the world. The images are on display in the cases around the central staircase on Level 2 of Case-Geyer. These little creatures, bright and light, are a sweet reminder that there’s hope for warmth and sunshine yet to come! We hope you enjoy them.
