Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation

17 March 2023

Unfortunately, the self-guided reading room tour has been postponed until fall because the logistics of the Web site component are taking longer than expected. In the meantime a case at the entrance of the reading room will contain changing displays of information about the history of the room and the furniture. We begin with Edward Garratt's designs for our conference room chairs.
