Please visit the 6th floor of the F.H.G. Library to view our exciting new exhibit. The display features a variety of materials including photographs, papers, artifacts, slides and specimens from the Robert B. Gordon Collection, which is housed in our archives. Dr. Gordon was a faculty member at West Chester University from 1938-1981, head of the biology department, and a well-known botanist. Also on display are artifacts from the Chester County Cabinet of Natural Sciences & Museum Collections, which were donated at the founding of West Chester Normal School in 1871. Several books relating to science and nature are also included, showcasing just one part of our diverse special collection materials.
If any of these materials interest you, please feel free to find out more by visiting Special Collections Room 615. Or, contact Tara Wink, Special Collections Librarian at TWink@wcupa.edu (ext. 3456) or Emily Bergen, Special Collections Technician at firstname.lastname@example.org (ext. 2403).
