Newly cataloged collection of science materials now open for research

A collection of science materials from the family of Sir John F. W. Herschel (1792–1871) is now open for research after a $10,000 grant enabled the Center to rehouse the collection and create an online inventory.  John Herschel has been called Britain's first modern physical scientist, and his correspondence has been described as one of the most valuable archives for nineteenth-century science. LEARN MORE or VIEW online inventory.
