On the occasion of her 50th reunion, Lois E. Jackson C ’63 has given to the Drew Library a large collection of botanical books.
Ms. Jackson’s keen interest in this field was inspired by Professor of Botany Robert K. Zuck, with whom she studied at Drew. The collection encompasses all fields of botany, from historical and contemporary botanical art, to the great plant explorers and histories. Ranging in date from the late 18th century to the present, it includes reference works, limited editions and signed prints.
Representative works from the Zuck Collection of Botanical Books will be on exhibit in the main library from October 3 through November 4.
Curated by Lois Jackson in consultation with librarians Lucy Marks and Jennifer Heise.
