Opening Reception: Joseph Leidy Exhibition
10/02/2014
4:30 PM
6:00 PM
This event and exhibition celebrate the science of Joseph Leidy, Swarthmore's first professor of Biology (i.e., Natural History). Leidy was one of America's leading paleontologists, protozoologists, and parasitologists during his years at Swarthmore. He mounted the first dinosaur skeleton (ever) and was the first person to solve a murder mystery using the microscope (when he was an assistant coroner in Philadelphia). He was also an amazing scientific illustrator, and although his beloved museum was destroyed in the Parrish fire, his hand-drawn teaching charts remain. Many of these will be displayed on the main floor along with some of the specimens he collected. 

Brief talks by historian of science and exhibit curator Carin Berkowitz andProfessor of Wistar Institute and University of Pennsylvania biologyprofessor Leonard Warren will be followed by a reception.


This event is one of several planned during the 2014 calendar year tocelebrate Swarthmore's Sesquicentennial. Explore the full list at: http://swat150.swarthmore.edu/sesqui-events-1-.html
