Throwback Thursday from the Molluscs theoretical cabinet of Museum History

Have you ever wondered where this museum came from?

Well, check out this article written about the museum and published in the Association of Systematics Collections newsletter back in October 1982 to get a sense of its history.

We don’t have the April edition of this description so it is missing information about the Herbarium, Insects and Spiders, and the Acarology lab, but be sure to check back in the future for some photographs of the old museum from a lovely guide put together by the late (incredibly well-organized) Carol B. Stein.
