Hidden Works of Nature: The Microscopic World in the Library & Archives

Friday, February 4, 2022

11:00 AM-4:00 PM

How did a 40-year-old draper with no formal education ignite the study of our microscopic world?

How do archives document the Academy’s role in microscopy and the study of diatoms? Join us behind the scenes in the Academy’s Library & Archives as staff share collections that illuminate the stories behind scientific discovery.

These informal, 20-minute talks will take place at the top of each hour from 11 a.m.- 4 p.m.

Please meet outside the Library & Archives entrance, inside the Dietrich Gallery.

Free with general admission. Click here to purchase tickets.
